The last time that Costa Rica beat the US was in a 2-0 win in September 2017.

Costa Rica’s last game was a 5-4 CONCACAF Nations league penalty shootout loss to Honduras. The game ended 2-2 after 90 minutes.
Costa Rica have not won a competitive game in their last nine outings, dating back to February 2020.
Interestingly Costa Rica drew their last two games (against Honduras and Mexico) but ended up losing the games on penalties in the CONCACAF Nations League.
Costa Rica are in poor form while the USA are in high spirits and will be looking to improve upon their current FIFA ranking of 20. I expect the USA to win this game though Costa Rica could be competitive.
Prediction: USA 1-0 Costa Rica
Anytime Goal Scorers
USA- Christian Pulisic. Pulisic is the best attacker in the US team and he will punish the Costa Rican defence if they are caught napping.
Costa Rica- Joel Campbell. The Leon forward can be a clinical striker when on form and will be looking to punish the US.
