(QCOSTARICA SPORTS) Today’s game in Toronto is “like a final” – life or death – for one of them, as Costa Rica and Canada, each head into their third game of Gold Cup play.
The Ticos have endured a frustrating tournament, with a 2-2 draw against Jamaica and throwing away three points in a tie against El Salvador.
But the game may not be the end for the teams, but, also for the coaches. In Costa Rica, although coach Paulo Wanchope says his team is playing fine, the people don’t think so and many may want to see him gone.
For the Canadians, supporters are quickly losing confidence in coach Benito Floro. In a Toronto Sun article, Floro doesn’t have a wealth of players to choose from, Canada’s player pool isn’t strong.
Game time is 6:30pm local time (8:30pm at BMO field in Toronto).
