28-Year-Old Forward PSV Eindhoven Eredivisie
Ruiz scored the lone goal off a header Friday against Italy that resulted in a Costa Rican victory.
Ruiz bolted behind the Italian defense to receive a cross that was beautifully headed off the crossbar and into the goal. He has provided Costa Rica with a veteran presence and led by example with his first ever World Cup goal. Ruiz stands a good chance to be in another fortuitous position when Costa Rica faces England on Tuesday.
