CONCACAF Power Rankings: Costa Rica on top

United States head coach Jurgen Klinsmann thinks his team need to get tougher following their 4-1 loss to Ireland in Dublin.

The 2014 international year is in the books and by the time the nations of CONCACAF resume action in March, the 2015 Gold Cup will be just a few months away.

Since the World Cup, several countries' performances have improved noticeably while others have declined. In the great spirit of the CONCACAF Hexagonal, it only makes sense for ESPN FC to debut its regional Power Rankings with its top six teams, plus a list of ones to watch come 2015.

1. Costa Rica

Cue the arched eyebrows and quizzical looks....

A week's worth of watching the international 'week of football'

The ESPN FC team discuss Tuesday's international friendlies, including Scotland's loss at home to England and what the United States need to do to get back on track.

With the novelty of the "Week of Football" wearing off, ESPN FC asked Iain Macintosh to watch as many games as he possibly could and tell us whether he still thought it was a good idea at the end. Here's what he made of it all. -- FC editors

Turkey vs. Brazil

For some reason impossible to comprehend, British broadcasters have no interest in a relatively meaningless exhibition game between two foreign nations, but we are made of sturdy stuff at ESPN FC, and lights are cast upon...

Bitter end as Pinto exits Costa Rica

His departure was expected. Jorge Luis Pinto's name had been linked to other jobs. When Costa Rica fans thanked the coach and asked him to stay, Pinto always sounded appreciative and frequently teared up. But he never made any promises, saying at the team's homecoming parade: "I'll always carry this memory in my heart." The 61-year-old Colombian sounded like a man in search of a new challenge.

So it wasn't a surprise when Fedefut -- the Costa Rican Football Federation -- failed to re-sign Pinto after...

Best XI of the World Cup

Our 2014 World Cup team would take some beating.

This year's World Cup has seen the rise of the 3-5-2 formation, so it's only fair that our Best XI from the tournament lines up in the same way. Here are the 11 players who did more than any others to impress this summer.

GK: Keylor Navas (Costa Rica)

In a tournament rich in goalkeeping skills, it takes a lot to shine above the rest. There have been some standout performances this summer from the likes of the USA's Tim Howard, Mexico's Guillermo Ochoa and Nigerian stopper Vincent Enyeama. However,...

CONCACAF wants more World Cup spots

RIO DE JANEIRO -- CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb is walking a bit taller these days.

A confederation often mocked as one of the world's weakest placed three teams in the knockout stages of World Cup for the first time.

Costa Rica reached the quarterfinals for the first time in its history, and was the first CONCACAF side to reach that round since 2002. The 2014 tournament, which concludes with Sunday's final between Germany and Argentina, saw the U.S. reach the round of 16 for the second tournament...

Assessment: Costa Rican roller coaster

Costa Rica exited the World Cup after upsetting the odds to make it to the quarterfinals, where the Netherlands ended their remarkable journey. ESPN FC blogger Matt Levin gives his verdict on the brighter points of the campaign as well as what went wrong.

One sentence: World Cup recap

Nobody gave Costa Rica a chance, but the Ticos conquered three former champions in the group stage, bested the Greeks in the last 16 and came achingly close to a spot in the semifinals in the country's best-ever World...
