La Volpe names first Costa Rica squad

New Costa Rica coach Ricardo La Volpe has named his first squad,

calling up only Costa Rica-based players for a friendly on Nov. 17

against Jamaica.

A similar squad is expected to represent Costa Rica in the

Central American championship in January.

La Volpe, an Argentine who coached Mexico in the 2006 World Cup,

said he plans to focus on young players before calling up those

based in Europe and the United States.
