Prosoft Nearshore, the world leader in nearshore software development outsourcing, wants to officially congratulate the National Men’s Soccer Team of Costa Rica on qualifying for the knockout round of the World Cup!

Prosoft Nearshore has been a proud partner of Costa Rica, utilizing offices there to save our customers money and improve communication lines.  The Tico’s as they are known, have qualified for the second round for only the second time in their nation’s history.

After winning games against both Uruguay and Italy, Costa Rica finished the group stage with a 0-0 draw against England to win their Group D outright.  They will play the second place team from Group C in their round of sixteen matchup.  That could be the Ivory Coast, Columbia, Japan, or Greece.

Costa Rica becomes the second team in this World Cup to qualify for the knockout stages from CONCACAF.  Mexico came in second in Group A just yesterday.  CONCACAF is the confederation of soccer teams representing North and Central America.  Honduras and the United States of America are also representing CONCACAF in this tournament.  While Honduras has already been eliminated in a group that features Ecuador, Switzerland, and France, America could give CONCACAF a third advancing team with a win or a draw against Germany.

While Prosoft Nearshore treasures Costa Rica for their amazing software developers who excel at Java, C++, and ruby on rails, we are also proud of their athletic prowess.  Their continued development as a power in international athletics is a testament to the solid and consistent economic and political state of the nation.

Prosoft Nearshore wishes all of the remaining teams at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil the best of luck, we hold a special place in our heart for all of our corporate partners like Costa Rica and the USA.

Congratulations once again on this notable achievement!
