Latin American nickname competition…

Watching the games here in Costa Rica has meant I have heard some great nicknames for players that people have in this part of the world.  So I thought I would keep a list of the nicknames of some players who have appeared in this World Cup and see if anyone can guess who is who…
There may be a prize for the first person to get the most correct…


Apache 
Jefecito
Puma
Conejo
El Niño
Chicharito
Gringo
Pulga
Chupete
El Niño Maravilla

Sounds like a gang of ne’er-do-wells if ever I heard one…

Good luck and no cheating mind….
