Yeltsin Tejeda is a committed, fearless and tireless presence in Costa Rica's team, his primary role in defensive midfield being to regain possession and disrupt the opposition's game. He does not get forward as much as other midfielders in the squad but is a forceful presence when he does attack, and his accurate long balls are useful when playing a more direct style.

After first featuring on the international stage at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Nigeria, Tejeda advanced into the senior side two years later as a teenager. Russia 2018 will be his second successive World Cup appearance.
