“The San José game is the biggest game in 2013 or all of us because we want to win there,” United States Coach Jurgen Klinsman told USsoccer.com. “We want to get three points. We want to qualify as soon as possible for the World Cup in Brazil. We want to get the first-ever three points in World Cup qualifying in Costa Rica. It’s going to be huge. We have to be extremely disciplined with eight or nine players being on yellow cards to prepare also for the game against Mexico in Columbus, so going into Costa Rica we really need to be on top of our game. We need to be very focused and sharp and make it happen.”
The Costa Rica – US game will be played at the Estadio Nacional (National Stadium) starting at 8pm, with the gates opening at 3pm. Tickets for this event are SOLD OUT!
