Wanna see some real speed? 🏃

Díaz's pace has proven his ability to get into dangerous positions time and time again and set his teammates up for success through 14 assists in his time with the Crew. Whether on the left or right side, Díaz’s speed will stun defenders and Rapids’ fans alike and set up strikers like Rafael Navarro, Diego Rubio, and Kévin Cabral for a shot on goal, if he doesn’t take the shot himself, that is.

On the International Stage🇨🇷

Díaz has appeared for the Costa Rican national team on eight occasions—making his debut in September of 2019 against Uruguay in an international friendly. The winger showed off his talents in Concacaf Nations League, 2021 Gold Cup, and World Cup qualifiers in the past and remains hungry for more opportunities to wear the colors of Los Ticos.

Familiar Faces

Moving to a new state, new club, and new environment with little notice can be daunting, but the young player has already found a familiar face within his new team: Aboubacar Keita. Keita and Díaz spent time together on the Columbus squad from 2019 to 2021before Keita joined the Rapids backline.
