The team had a celebratory lap of honour after the game, where the amount of empty seats were even more noticeable.
Egypt has a chance to reach the World Cup for the first time since 1990 if it beats Republic of Congo on Sunday to end the penultimate round of African qualifiers. "I don't want to be interpreted wrong, but the country is going through a hard situation", Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas said at a news conference.
It will be the fifth appearance at the World Cup for the Central American side after they topped Group D, which England failed to clear, in Brazil in 2014.
Costa Rica qualified for the 2018 World Cup finals late on Saturday after Kendall Waston's goal in the fifth minute of stoppage time in San Jose gave them a 1-1 draw against Honduras and the point they needed to seal their spot in Russian Federation.
Costa Rica will be playing in their fifth World Cup finals.
The last gasp goal was greeted by wild celebrations from players and fans alike at the National Stadium in San Jose.
The dramatic late goal means the United States likely needs at most a draw at Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday night to qualify for its eighth straight World Cup berth. "Still developing their game so they are bound to commit mistakes", said Costa Rica coach Breansse Camacho, who saw his team concede both the goals through a mistake committed by his defenders.
The Americans would be eliminated only if they lose and Panama and Honduras both win.
While Waston's goal was badly needed, the reaction of the commentary team, the crowd and especially manager Oscar Ramirez was a sight to behold.
