SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- The question of who is the best current player from the CONCACAF region flummoxes Costa Ricans. It provokes raised eyebrows and startled looks. The answer for Ticos is obvious: Keylor Navas.

The Real Madrid and Costa Rica No. 1 showed exactly why they, and many others, think that way when he produced a magical save in the 67th minute of Costa Rica's 2-0 win over the United States on Friday, when the score was 1-0 and the game was in the balance.

On Tuesday, Navas will look...

HARRISON, N.J. -- The U.S. men's national team fell 2-0 to Costa Rica on Friday night, once again imperiling its chances of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup. Ticos' forward Marco Urena scored goals either side of halftime, and Costa Rica's defense held firm throughout the match.

Here are three thoughts from a humbling defeat for the U.S.:

Costa Rica must confront bogeyman Dempsey in World Cup qualifier vs. U.S.

Taylor Twellman, Herculez Gomez and Kasey Keller debate the role Clint Dempsey should have for the U.S. against Costa Rica.
As qualifying winds down, Bruce Arena says the U.S. are still a long way from Russia, but hopes experience helps his team.

The voice had a sound of panic and helplessness. Like some sort of premonition of doom. It was July 22 of this year at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and the Gold Cup semifinal between the United States and Costa Rica was tied at zero.

He had been warming for most of the second half, and it was right around the 66th minute that Clint Dempsey got the signal from U.S. coach Bruce Arena that he was going in.

Seeing Dempsey make his way toward the fourth official, the 45,516 inside the home...

The United States will try to move closer to securing a place in the 2018 World Cup when it hosts Costa Rica on Friday in a CONCACAF qualifier -- the first competitive game the team has held in the New York area in eight years.

Three teams will qualify automatically from the North America region, and with four games remaining in the final round, known as the Hexagonal, Costa Rica is in second place and the U.S. is in third.

Either team could clinch an appearance in the World Cup during the upcoming...

Influx of Costa Ricans into MLS ups the ante of World Cup qualifier vs. U.S.

Max & Herc break preview the international break, assess David Villa's Spain call up and give their final thoughts on Mayweather vs. McGregor.

It was a refrain that was repeated throughout the mixed zone by the Costa Rican players as they exited Arlington, Texas' AT&T Stadium last July following the 2-0 Gold Cup semifinal loss to the United States:

"This is disappointing, but the more important one is in September," said defender Francisco Calvo, echoing the sentiments of teammates. "We'll be ready for that one."

There was almost a quiet acceptance about the defeat from the Ticos. They could only shrug their shoulders, acknowledging...
