The U.S. team needs to win this afternoon or risk missing out a on a trip to Russia next year

Costa Rica is in second place, behind Mexico, in the CONCACAF Hexagonal. The U.S. is in third, one point ahead of Panama. A loss today may land them in fourth place and no trip to Russia next year.


Costa Rica thrashed the U.S. 4-0 last November.

“This is a very important game for the U.S. team if we have any hopes of qualifying for Russia,” coach Bruce Arena told Sports Illustrated on Thursday. “Costa Rica has been one of the strongest teams in the competition to date. They have an outstanding team. They beat the U.S. team convincingly last November and this certainly will be a very difficult game.”

Since 1989, it’s Costa Rica and the USA who have risen to challenge Mexico as CONCACAF’s dominant power.

However, the pre-game shows, analysis and all that is national ‘futbol’ starts at 3:30 pm Costa Rica.
