Costa Rica sack coach Medford after dismal run

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica, June 27 (Reuters) - Costa Rica fired coach Hernan Medford on Friday as a result of their long winless streak in the run up to their 2010 World Cup qualifiers, local media reported.

'At last I'm free,' Medford said after a meeting with the country's soccer federation chiefs, according to Costa Rican newspaper La Nacion.

Under Medford, Costa Rica went 12 successive games without a victory until they beat Grenada 3-0 on June 21 in the second leg of a World Cup qualifier. The two sides drew 2-2 in the first leg.

He was capped 89 times as a player and had been in charge since October 2006.

The win sent Costa Rica to the next round of qualifying.

They have qualified for the World Cup three times and reached the second round of the 1990 finals in Italy.
