PositionForward

Gomez started at LD Alajuelense before moving to play in Spain for Sporting Gijon then onto Municipal before moving to play for Greek side OFI in 1999.

He can play as a holding player but his runs off of the ball and powerful left foot shot make him an attacking danger for his team.

Gomez scored Costa Rica's first goal in their opening game win at the 2002 World Cup finals against China and also found the net in the final Group C game - a 5-2 defeat by Brazil.

Four years later, Gomez scored the last of Costa Rica's three goals at the 2006 World Cup finals in a Group A 1-2 defeat by Poland.
