Out-of-contract Ruiz focused on Costa Rica

18 June 2018

Costa Rica captain Bryan Ruiz insists that his uncertain club future will not prove a distraction during the World Cup.

The 32-year-old`s contract at Sporting CP expired at the end of the 2017-18 season after a three-year spell with the Portuguese side.

Ruiz featured in Costa Rica`s World Cup defeat to Serbia on Sunday and is adamant that his focus is solely on leading his country at Russia 2018.

The Sporting situation isn`t in my mind, he said.

I am out of contract so I have no problems with any of that. I will take my decision on the next club after this World Cup and that`s the only thing.

I prepared myself as best as I could. I felt good going into this tournament.

Costa Rica face a daunting Group E clash against Brazil on Friday knowing defeat would all-but prevent them from reaching the knock-out stages.
