Costa Rica coach resigns following World Cup flop
font size    

Costa Rica coach Alexandre Guimaraes announced his resignation on Monday after the South American team performed poorly at the World Cup in Germany.

Costa Rica, who qualified for their third World Cup finals, suffered three straight defeats at this year's tournament.

Guimaraes had been under fire from local media for the dismal performances, including defeats against Germany (4-2), Ecuador (3-0) and Poland (2-1) in Group A.

Costa Rica reached the second round in 1990 but failed to get past the first round at the last tournament in 2002.
