A hard-running left-back, Bryan Oviedo can occasionally be found on the right flank. Solid in defence, he also has an important attacking role to play for Los Ticos thanks to his qualities as a wing back. A powerful runner with the ball at his feet, Oviedo can be relied upon to hit the by-line and get a cross in, and also has much to offer when it comes to taking set-pieces.

An untimely double fracture to his left leg caused him to miss the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™. Despite being sidelined for several months, moving to England and suffering a string of injury niggles, Oviedo worked his way back into national team contention and played a part in the closing stages of the Russia 2018 qualifiers. The defender was also a member of the Costa Rica team that claimed a historic fourth place at the FIFA U-20 World Cup Egypt 2009.
