President of Costa Rica

Mentally Prepared to Lose

... At World Cup

6/12/2014 12:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Costa Rica World Cup 2014
The President of Costa Rica knows ... if his team is gonna win the World Cup, it's gonna take a miracle -- which could explain why he's already mentally prepared himself for the worst. 

Luis Guillermo Solis was out in D.C. today -- while his team preps to play Uruguay, Italy and England -- and he admitted things aren't looking up when it comes to advancing to the next round.

"I mean, it's gonna be difficult ... it's a difficult group ... but we'll do our best." 

Translation -- at least we MADE the World Cup. 

Then again, it's more optimistic than the Team USA coach who said his squad has NO CHANCE to win the tourney. Sad ...

It's just called being realistic and honest, it doesn't mean he thinks "at least we MADE the World Cup." or "Mentally Prepared to Lose". You should have told him not to give you an honest response at the beginning . But I'm guessing you don't know much about soccer, and you enjoy manipulating information and people to increase your ratings. The title of this article perfectly portrays what is so wrong with media this days.

Winning the World Cup is hard. Unlike some leaders, at least he gave an honest answer. I like that guy.

TMZ Staff thought the president of Costa Rica was mentally prepared to lose, but I think you didn't really understand the strategy. But it is understandable, Uruguay, Italy and England Teams didn't as well.
Hope USA Team makes it to next round
