When Costa Rica faced off against Mexico last week New York Red Bulls defender Roy Miller was stretchered off in the 78th minute. His status was unknown for a couple of days, but Miller had missed time earlier this year at the beginning of the regular season as he struggled with a knee injury.
Fortunately, according to Yashinquesada.com, the defender was taken off simply for precautionary reasons. Costa Rica's coaching staff is perhaps wise to play it safe: injury has already prevented several key players from being selected for the upcoming Gold Cup. But there is no current expectation that Miller will join Los Ticos' long injury list, that already includes Keylor Navas, Oscar Duarte, Bryan Oviedo, Yeltsin Tejeda, and Juan Bustos.
The RBNY defender should be available to add to his 54 national team caps when Costa Rica plays its first game of this year's CONCACAF Gold Cup on July 8 in Carson, California.
