Costa Rica have their best chance to upset U.S., Mexico and win Gold Cup

Costa Rica are arguably the most in-form team at the Gold Cup this summer. Can they win it all?

MEXICO CITY -- Any casual Mexico or U.S. fan would be hard pressed to remember that Costa Rica, not El Tri or the Stars and Stripes, advanced furthest in the 2014 World Cup. The Central American squad's growth on the world stage may have come as a surprise to outsiders but Los Ticos have consolidated themselves as a tough opponent both in and out of CONCACAF for the better part of the past 15 years.

In the past four World Cup cycles, only the United States has racked up more points than Costa...

1. Costa Rica -- Despite the absence of Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas, Costa Rica still boast a very strong squad.

'Chicharito' makes history as Mexico goes top of Hex with Costa Rica victory

'Chicharito' Hernandez equaled Jared Borgetti's goal record, but where does he stack up among the Mexico greats?

MEXICO CITY -- Three thoughts from an historic night for Mexican football, as Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez levels Jared Borgetti's Mexico scoring record in El Tri's 2-0 victory over Costa Rica. The win moves Mexico into first place in the Hexagonal round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying.

1. Hernandez's historic night

Hernandez hadn't scored a goal for the Mexico national team in nine months, but Friday was was the perfect opportunity. Borgetti struck 46 times for El Tri in 89 appearances,...

Defensive lapses doom U.S. in Costa Rica as Klinsmann's future left in doubt

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- The United States responded to last week's loss to Mexico by imploding against Costa Rica in Friday's World Cup qualifier at Estadio Nacional, getting dismantled 4-0 by the Ticos on goals by Johan Venegas, Christian Bolanos and Joel Campbell's second-half brace. Here are three quick thoughts on the match.

1. Costa Rica thumps U.S. at home yet again

After Friday's defeat to El Tri in Columbus, Ohio -- Mexico's first win in qualifying in the U.S. in more than four decades...

Smarting United States must start well against Costa Rica

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- When the United States last played in Costa Rica just over three years ago, the match was over almost before it began.

Michael Bradley, the Americans' beating heart in central midfield then and now, turned his ankle in the warm-up and had to be helped off the soggy Estadio Nacional field. Goals by Johnny Acosta and Celso Borges left the reeling Americans down 2-0 less than 10 minutes in. And when the final whistle blew a little less than two hours later, the visitors had...

Pulisic can provide U.S. X-Factor in World Cup qualifying Hexagonal

Jurgen Klinsmann has hailed Christian Pulisic's impact with the United States.

World Cup qualifying began in CONCACAF 17 months ago when the U.S. Virgin Islands defeated Barbados 1-0. Four rounds and 81 games later, 29 teams have been eliminated, leaving six countries to contest the final round.

The format of the Hexagonal is forgiving to say the least. (Find the full Hex schedule here.) The top three finishers qualify automatically for Russia 2018 while the fourth-place team will take on the fifth-place side from the Asia Football Confederation in a playoff to help fill...
