The Costa Rica vs USA CONCACAF World Cup qualifying match will be this Friday, September 6, 2013 (7:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Nacional. The game in San Jose will be a great contest between two teams who still remember the snow storm in Denver where the United States won 1-0. The ‘ticos’ want their revenge as they felt they were wrongly forced to play that match, therefore, this Friday will have one of the best and most important matches in the Hexagonal.
Costa Rica is currently in 2nd place of the CONCACAF qualifiers with 11 points after six matches played. The team coached by Jorge Luis Pinto has had good demonstrations in which they have scored 7 goals, but only received 3. When they receive the USA, they will play for the group’s first place, as the opponents lead the Hexagonal with 13 points.
The team coached by Jurgen Klinsmann is on an exciting 12 game winning streak which they will look to extend in San Jose. The USA has improved their style and performances drastically in the past year, to the point where they could once again be considered the elite team in the CONCACAF region. Friday’s contest will be a good exam for the ‘stars-and-stripes’ as a win will secure a place in next year’s World Cup.
The USA and ‘ticos’ may play their most important game at the Estadio Nacional because a win not only will lead them to the top of the group, but it will also put them a step closer to their goal which is the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
