USA Men’s National Team vs Costa Rica, World Cup Qualifier: Open Thread

usa flag USA Mens National Team vs Costa Rica, World Cup Qualifier: Open Thread

The US men’s national team faces a must-win match tonight against Costa Rica in their path to try to qualify for the 2014 World Cup.

After losing 2-1 to Honduras in February, it’s imperative that the USA team gets three points tonight in Denver (live on ESPN at 9:45pm ET) especially given the USA’s next opponent — arch-enemy Mexico, where trying to get three points against them may be too much to ask.

The most pressure tonight is on Jurgen Klinsmann’s shoulder as US coach, but knowing the German, I would think that he would prefer it to be that way instead of on the shoulders of his players.
