Ian Smith represents the present and the future of the Costa Rica team. A young right-back with huge potential who has already amassed experience playing in Europe, his speed and technique are what set him apart. Smith likes to get forward frequently during games and is also able to play as a winger.
He moved to Sweden in 2016 linking with Hammarby, before joining Norrkoping. His national team debut arrived only in March, coming on as a substitute against Scotland, just a few weeks after turning 20.
