Remember the 12-game winning streak? That was fun while it lasted. Costa Rica jumped out on the US to get an early 2-0 lead and scored one late to win 3-1. The US is now 0-8-1 all-time in Costa Rica for World Cup qualifiers. Of the last five times that the US has allowed 3+ goals in a World Cup qualifier, four have come against Costa Rica. And Geoff Cameron, Jozy Altidore and Matt Besler all picked up a second yellow card during qualification and will miss Tuesday’s game against Mexico.
The US can still clinch a spot in Brazil on Tuesday with a win and a Honduras win or draw versus Panama.
