    SANTOS, Brazil – The Costa Rican Football Federation announced Tuesday that defender Heiner Mora will miss the 2014 FIFA World Cup with a stress fracture in his right heel. 

    The news came after a series of tests conducted on Monday evening revealed an injury that will keep the Saprissa star sidelined for more than six weeks. 

    Mora played in only one game during the qualifying campaign for Brazil 2014.  His strong play in the recently completed Torneo Verano helped Saprissa to its first title in four years and a berth in the 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League.  The Monstruo Morado conceded only 20 goals in a combined 26 Verano regular season and playoff outings.

    The 29-year-old will be replaced on the roster by Herediano’s Dave Myrie.
