Although the game ended 1-1 the importance of this game was to provide something for the Peruvian people to keep their minds off the recent tragedy that struck their country. Also thanks to the organization of the Costa Rican Football Federation, the Costa Rican Red Cross and the Peruvian embassy in Costa Rica donations for the survivors of the Peru earthquake were received at the stadium.
