Club career[edit]

Cayasso played in Costa Rica for the two biggest teams, starting out in Alajuelense in the early 80's, and later switching to their arch-rivals Saprissa before the 1988 season. His transfer caused a lot of national attention because he was considered one of the most talented players in Costa Rica at the time. He made his debut for Alajuelense on 21 July 1981 against Ramonense and scored his first goal against Cartaginés on 11 April 1982.[2] He played 225 matches for Alajuelense, scoring 62 goals. He played 104 games in total for Saprissa, scoring 27 goals.[3]

Cayasso won several national championships, both with Saprissa and Alajuela, as well as a two CONCACAF Champions Cup titles, with Alajuelense in 1986 and with Saprissa in 1995. During the early 90's, Cayasso played in the German Bundesliga with Stuttgarter Kickers, and later came back to Saprissa, where helped his team win several titles more. In January 1996 he moved to Turrialba after finding it hard to get playing time at Saprissa[4] and in November 1996, Cayasso joined Goicoechea.[5]

He scored his 100th league goal on 18 March 1998 for Carmelita[3] but was released by them in March 2000.[6]

International career[edit]

Nicknamed el Nene (the Kid),[7] he made his debut for Costa Rica in 1983 and has earned a total of 49 caps, scoring 9 goals.[8] He has represented his country in 10 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[9] and is mostly remembered for scoring the first Costa Rican goal ever in a World Cup,[10] against Scotland during the 1990 World Cup finals played in Italy.[9] That game was won by the Ticos, against all predictions.

His final international was a July 1993 CONCACAF Gold Cup match against Jamaica. He also played at the 1984 Olympic Games held in Los Angeles.[11][9]
