Costa Rica Defeats USA On Its Own Soil

Costa Rica Defeats USA On Its Own Soil

Mexico leads with 14 points, followed by Costa Rica (11), the U.S.

After today's game versus Costa Rica, the USA team will head to San Pedro Sula to take on Honduras. Our attacking players weren't risky on the night. Fabian Johnson, Michael Bradley, Darlington Nagbe, and Christian Pulisic spread across the midfield behind Jozy Altidore and Bobby Wood. Mexico can return to sole possession of first place with a draw against visiting Panama later in the evening, while Honduras can close to within three points of the U.S.by defeating host Trinidad & Tobago.

"Qualifying has been in jeopardy since previous year for most teams", he said. The host Ticos have all but clinched a berth to Russian Federation, so there will be some questions about the roster that comes in for this game as well as how motivated Costa Rica will be. While Costa Rica moved a step closer to qualifying for the World Cup, the US suddenly finds itself in serious jeopardy heading into a match it can't afford to lose, and one the Americans will have to play without Altidore, who is suspended after picking up a suspect yellow card. That's the scenario they face should Panama beat Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday and then the U.S.in October.

Sharapova advances again at US Open
Svitolina breezed through the first set before posting a 6-0, 6-7 (5), 6-3 victory over Siniakova, the world's 42nd-ranked player. After the final point, Sharapova dropped to her knees as a replay appeal showed what she already knew.

"I thought at times we put together some good plays, couldn't get the final part of the play right, in other moments it was a little bit too slow, a little bit too predictable", he said. "You could see early in the game they always sent a second player to him".

The streak slammed to a halt Friday night at Red Bull Arena against a Costa Rican team that proved to be tougher in defense and more ruthless in the attack. They carried more of the play and it must be said, physically dominated the Americans most of the time in 50-50 duels. I'd suspect that thinking could influence Arena to start Guzan more than what Howard did to contribute to Costa Rica's first goal on Friday.

US vs Costa Rica: The two football teams U.S. and Costa Rica of Central America, Carribean are going to face each other today in the World Cup Qualifying.

Bangladesh lose three wickets in quick succession against Australia
Steve Smith contemplates his Australian team's defeat to Bangladesh . "After this Test match they will show a lot more respect". Former Sri Lanka cricketer and commentator Russel Arnold also expressed his happiness over neighbours' inspiring win.

Gaining at least a point on Tuesday at Honduras is critical for the United States' chances to qualify for an eighth straight World Cup. The top three teams automatically earn a World Cup spot. Bottom line: Friday was frightful for the USA and a setback-and Jozy Altidore's yellow card that rules him out of Tuesday's match doesn't help-but it certainly doesn't erase the Americans' chance of making the World Cup. Altidore will miss the next match against Honduras on Tuesday.

Bryan Ruiz set Urena up for his first, and the San Jose Earthquakes striker left no doubt, beating Tim Howard at the far post to put his team up in the first half.

The most obvious replacement for Altidore is veteran Clint Dempsey, but Arena also has Jordan Morris and Chris Wondolowski at his disposal.

Kerber tumbles out of US Open
Juan Martin del Potro, the 2009 champion in NY , starts against Switzerland's Henri Laaksonen. Open in the first round when she lost 6-3 6-1 to Japanese teenager Naomi Osaka on Tuesday.
