Ureña double lifts Costa Rica over US

Ureña double lifts Costa Rica over US

United States faces Costa Rica in Red Bull Arena on Friday in another effort to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

On Tuesday, the US plays at Honduras and Costa Rica hosts Mexico. The last time the Costa Ricans defeated the Americans on their homeland came during a 1985 World Cup qualifier, with this win snapping a string of 17 straight defeats.

Juan Carlos Osorio's team faces Costa Rica on Tuesday in a game with implications for the rest of the teams in the Hex looking to follow Mexico's lead on the road to Russian Federation. Our attacking players weren't unsafe on the night.

"We were probably outplayed in most areas of the field". "We weren't good, we know that, but we can't dwell on it".

Arena meanwhile is also confident his team can recover their poise in time for Tuesday, insisting that the Costa Rica defeat would not be allowed to fester.

Another U.S. shortcoming Friday was in central defense, where Geoff Cameron and Tim Ream faltered.

Cameron was culpable on the second US goal as well, as it was his giveaway that sparked the Ticos' attack in the buildup to Urena's second.

"Darlington and Michael were not the problems in our game tonight", Arena said. "Our backline made some mistakes, we didn't come up with any big saves, our attacking players weren't risky on the night". We should have been a little bit better.

"We're not anxious", Bradley said. The U.S. attacking on set plays, normally a strong point, produced nearly nothing, and playmaker Christian Pulisic went down hard under the force of several fouls. "He had a tough game today, and obviously they paid a lot of attention to him", USA coach Bruce Arena said of Pulisic on Friday night. Near the edge of the 18-yard box, Urena spun away from Cameron to the right, got around Ream to the outside, then slipped a sliding right-footed shot under goalkeeper Tim Howard at the back post.

"He had a tough game today and obviously they paid a lot of attention to him", Arena said of Pulisic. "We had to break down seven or eight players for long periods of the game. They just defended very well against him". Unbeaten Mexico, which led the qualifying table with 14 points, played Panama, and Trinidad and Tobago faced Honduras in Friday's late CONCACAF qualifiers.

An impressive card display throughout Red Bull Arena as fireworks burst during the United States national anthem. This team will be one of the outsiders to go far in the tournament next year with the likes of Hazard, Lukaku and DeBruyne, Beligum has it all to make a run. I'd suspect that thinking could influence Arena to start Guzan more than what Howard did to contribute to Costa Rica's first goal on Friday.

CONCACAF's top three teams reach the World Cup, with the fourth-place team going into a playoff against an Asian team. "We'll bounce back, forget about it and move forward". This is how you deal in competition and sports.

Poland, the world's No. 5-ranked team, lost 4-0 in Denmark and now leads Group E by just three points from Montenegro and the Danes. But now, he must get his team reenergized ahead of Tuesday's match against Honduras. We didn't realize there would be a flyover but managed to snap this quick photo. We're not going to be able to get this game back.
