Arrieta Joins Costa Rican National Team

USA TODAY Sports

The Costra Rican has seen his fortunes revive since joining Columbus.

Costa Rican forward Jairo Arrieta will be joining the Ticos in their upcoming match against the United States and Jamaica. He has nine caps for the team since being brought onto the team in 2011 at the age of 27.

Arrieta moved into the squad's picture after a solid showing in the 2013 Copa Centroamericana. He scored twice for the Ticos as they won their seventh title and secured a spot in this summer's Gold Cup. He was also on the squad for the World Cup qualifier in February against Panama. He didn't see any action.

Arrieta has worked his way back into the Costa Rican national team in the past year, primarily due to his body of work with the Crew. He joined the team in June of last year and scored nine goals in 2012. He already started his tally for this year, scoring the Black and Gold's only goal in the loss to Vancouver.

Before his national team revival, Arrieta had appeared for the countries' Olympic team in 2004. He will join the team on Sunday following the San Jose match and will miss the Crew's game against D.C. United on March 23rd.
