FC Twente's Ruiz looking to beat Oranje with Costa Rica

Bryan Ruiz, captain of the Costa Rican football team, has been tipping his team's coach on the Dutch players. As he played for FC Twente, he says he knows a lot of the players very well and has been able to help Jorge Luis Pinto with the necessary information, the ANP reports.

The Costa Rican forward also says that the match against The Netherlands on Saturday will be all the more special because he knows the team so well. "It's like a final for us. We have already had a wonderful World Cup, but we want very much to stay in the tournament."

Ruiz, 28, is impressed with Oranje for winning all the games up to now. "The Netherlands has a great selection, it is a dream for every player from Costa Rica to be able to play against this team."
