Luis Marin

Club: Alajuelense
Position: Defender

Marin has earned the reputation as his country's best ball-playing centre-back.

Cool and composed under pressure, he is capable of passing his way out of trouble.

He has been apped more than 70 times by his country and even scored once during qualifying.

Marin peaked in the run-up to France 98 but was criticised for a loss of form after the tournament when he moved to club sides in Guatemala and then Uruguay.

He is now approaching a return to his best form since joining Alajuelense.
