Five Aside

U.S. fails to bounce back from Mexico loss, lays egg in defeat to Costa Rica

The United States lost their third consecutive game at home for the first time since 1997 in an international friendly against Costa Rica.

HARRISON, N.J. -- Three quick thoughts after the U.S. lost 1-0 to Costa Rica in a friendly at Red Bull Arena on Tuesday night.

1. Not the response the U.S. was looking for

On Monday, U.S. manager Jurgen Klinsmann said he wanted to see his team show its character and react positively to Saturday's crushing 3-2 CONCACAF Cup loss to archrival Mexico. "We want to see them come in here [with their] heads up and give a response, the guys that played already on Saturday night and also the guys that...

Paulo Wanchope's outburst reveals pressure on CONCACAF coaches

The finality of Costa Rican coach Paulo Wanchope's resignation on Wednesday was merely a formality to most who saw the video of the incident that led to him leaving the Ticos. It seemed only inevitable, especially given that something somewhat similar had taken place recently.

When the first news of a violent incident involving Wanchope in Panama broke, it did so on Twitter. That can only feel familiar to Mexico fans, many of whom started to hear word of former El Tri coach Miguel Herrera's airport...

Mexico's imperfect Gold Cup lives on thanks to late penalty

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Andres Guardado scored from the penalty spot deep into the second half of extra time against Costa Rica on Sunday to send Mexico to the semifinals of the Gold Cup.

El Tri overcame Los Ticos 1-0 in a tightly-contested affair and thanks to a penalty call that was dubious at best. Television replays showed Oribe Peralta fell to the ground inside the penalty area despite minimal contact from Costa Rica's Roy Miller.

Here are our three observations from the match:

Guillermo Ochoa masterclass keeps Mexico alive in the Gold Cup

Recently, Mexico can't help but run into dramatic finishes in the Gold Cup.

After a extremely exciting 4-4 match against Trinidad and Tobago on Wednesday, El Tri followed up the draw with a thrilling 1-0 victory over Costa Rica in the quarterfinals on Sunday.

Mexico maintained most of the momentum in the match but couldn't find a goal until a last-second penalty call in the second half of extra-time. The controversial decision provided El Tri with a late opportunity that captain Andres Guardado buried...

In Gold Cup, Costa Rica adjusting to new status as contenders

Costa Rica's draw against Jamaica was disappointing considering that the team has several players based in Europe, including Joel Campbell, right.

CARSON, Calif. -- Costa Rica's 2-2 draw against Jamaica in their Gold Cup opener on Wednesday showcased the best and worst of the Tico squad in the same match.

The team's slick passing game was on display, but their defense was also vulnerable to Jamaica's athletic runs and long balls over the top. It was a frustrating result for the squad that had promised much more this previous summer with a World Cup run to the quarterfinals. Then again, it's not always easy for a squad to transition from beloved...
