Costa Rica’s President Really Enjoyed Their Game Against Uruguay

This man loves football.

1. Here’s Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera, Costa Rica’s president, settling down with his family to watch their match against Uruguay.

He posted this image to his Facebook with the message: “Enjoy the party with your family. My prediction for today: 2-1 to Costa Rica”. Pretty bold call against the group favourites.

2. He was wrong. Costa Rica won 3-1, with a performance that included a pretty awesome celebration from Joel Campbell.




3. And this was how Rivera celebrated.

He wrote: “There’s no impossible challenge when we put our heart into it. We learned that we should never give up, even when the odds are against us.”
