  1. Herediano, of course. I’m kidding, they’re a joke, and so is CCL. Of all the calls for MLS/LigaMX in Copa Lib, the only one that makes sense is a Costa rican league team in Copa Sudamericana. That league needs it bad, strong international opponents. In fact, CCL suffers tremendously from not having a strong 3rd or 4th league. Might as well disinvite every team not from Liga MX/MLS. Build some damn new stadiums! Stop the excuses for CR, they’re wealthy af.
