It is no surprise to those who know better that Costa Rica currently sit atop the CONCACAF hexagonal points standing because, among other things, they have a young and exciting player like Joel Campbell within their ranks.
When the Reggae Boyz host Los Ticos at the National Stadium today at 7:00 pm, their defence will have to be on top of their game to keep this menace at bay.
With their tails in the air after humiliating the USA 3-1 on Friday night in San Jose, Costa Rica will expect to maintain their winning form against a Jamaica team at the bottom of the six-nation group with a mere three points from seven matches.
No doubt, Campbell, 21, will be a key figure in the Central American team's offensive thrust to add to their tournament-leading 14 points, plus the winger will be hungry for more goals, having scored one in Friday's win over the USA.
Campbell, who is currently on loan to Olympiakos, is an Arsenal player who began his career with Deportivo Saprissa SAD of Costa Rica.
The 5ft 10in forward also had a loan stint with La Liga's Real Betis in July 2012, an indication of his appeal to top clubs across the football kingdom.
He made his debut on August 25 as a second-half substitute in Betis' 2-1 defeat to Rayo Vallecano. Campbell scored his first goal in a 3-2 win against Deportivo La Corona. He was again on target in a 2-0 victory against Levante.
Away from the club scene, Campbell officially debuted in the senior Costa Rica national football team on June 5, 2011 and scored a goal in a 5-0 win over Cuba in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
He then hit the target on July 7, 2011 against Bolivia in the 2011 Copa America. Continuing on his form, he scored his third international goal in a game against Spain that finished 2-2. He also scored against Wales in the Gary Speed Memorial Match which turned out to be the only goal in the match.
Campbell was selected in Costa Rica's squad for the 2009 CONCACAF U-17 Championship. He was the team's highest scorer, although scoring only two goals in total. He was named in the 2011 CONCACAF U-20 Championship two years later and finished the competition as joint top scorer with six goals.
Since making his international debut in 2011, Campbell has scored eight goals from 26 appearances.
After all is said and done, Jamaica's defenders must be vigilant and keep an eye on this fast-moving target.
