I watched the Costa Rica at United States World Cup qualifier last night. The US had already clinched a World Cup berth, but Costa Rica needed a win to immediately clinch. The US hadn't lost a home qualifier in 17 years. Costa Rica got two goals from the same player within 3 minutes of each other in the first half, and the US got one back in the second. Playing a man down deep into stoppage time (95th minute), the US got the tying goal off a corner kick. Costa Rica now must win a 2-match playoff with Uruguay in order to qualify for the World Cup. It was an exciting game, but a devastating loss for Costa Rica.
