Costa Rican defender Roy Miller is one of the many players from the Costa Rican National team playing in Western Hemisphere.

Roy Miller had a very disappointing 2013 Major League Soccer year, he played only 17 games, starting 16 matches, and missed much of the playoffs, while only notching one assist throughout the whole season. He was able to come back for the second leg of the Playoff semifinal against Houston but didn't get onto the pitch. His lowest point of the season came during the March 10th match against San Jose, when a string of poor decisions cost the New York Red Bulls the match (they lost 2-1). He had a handball in the box, thus creating a penalty kick for Chris Wondolowski. On the penalty Miller encroached on the run up, which on the first attempt was saved by Luis Robles, but having encroached, Chris would have to retake, and he made the second one.

In 96 matches for the NY Red Bull, he's started 87 matches, and had twelve assists, while still looking for his first MLS goal. He's been in the MLS with the Red Bull since 2010, when he transferred into the league from Rosenborg in Norway. Roy started his career at Costa Rican side Cartagines (2001-05).

He's played for the national side since 2005, and has 42 caps, with one goal. The most famous Costa Rican match, is the "snow game" in Denver against the United States which the Ticos lost 1-0 on March 22, 2013. His favorite player is Rivaldo.
