Thanks for the reply and warm welcome.

Costa Rica is a dire hard soccer country. There are small groups of Europeans and a few gringos that do play and are quite competitive.

Unfortunately, I have never been asked to join a game...

A slang term used to describe a North American.

I prefer an "extranjero"" which means foreigner.

Have a good weekend.
