Pablo Chinchilla

Club: Saprissa
Position: Defender

Alexander Guimaraes has described Chinchilla as a young player with a lot of talent.

But that talent was given just one chance to shine, with disastrous consequences, in qualifying.

Called up for the match against Barbados, the young defender was blamed by many for the surprise 2-1 defeat.

At club level he has proved himself to be a strong presence but he only made the squad following the withdrawal of Reynaldo Parks.
