    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica – Costa Rica head Jorge Luis Pinto added a new goalkeeper to his World Cup Qualifying roster on Saturday, following the suspension of starter Keilor Navas for yellow card accumulation. 

    The Colombian called in Herediano’s Leonel Moreira, who will join Patrick Pemberton to form the team’s goalkeeping tandem for Tuesday’s CONCACAF Hexagonal match at Jamaica.

    Both Navas and Christian Bolaños were issued their second cautions of the final round in a 3-1 win over the United States on Friday, a result that catapulted the Ticos into first place.  Unlike Navas, no replacement, as of yet, was named for the FC Copenhagen midfielder. 

    "A few days ago I said that we could not get to play against the USA thinking players could be suspended for accumulation of yellow cards and we did," said Pinto.

    Navas has appeared in a team-high 12 qualifiers for Brazil 2014, while Bolaños has played in 10 encounters.
