A little over an hour before the start of the match between the United States and Costa Rica, the visiting team set foot on the field of the Costa Rican National Stadium. There is talk that Pulisic will start as a starter in this matchup.
The United States seeks to seal the ticket to the World Cup. This game is practically a formality for it, so its destiny is already in the World Cup pots. The USMNT will be placed in pot 2 if nothing strange comes up tonight. The team will share a plate with Mexico (if it advances), Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Croatia and Uruguay.
For Costa Rica to advance directly, it needs a win over the United States tonight. And for Mexico to face New Zealand in the playoffs, the Tricolor must go down today by a difference of two goals at home.

Gregg Berhalter spoke prior to the game and assured that his team will not go looking for an equalizer. He stated that the United States will take to the field to go after the three points.
“We are not going to be cautious, we are not going to relax, we are not going to play for a draw, we are going for the victory. It is the mentality that is needed. It would be strange, after 13 games, to differ (in the form of the game) in the last match”; stated at the Berhalter press conference.
full note, HERE.
Hello everyone and excellent Wednesday. Welcome to the closing match of the 2022 Concacaf World Cup qualifiers between Costa Rica and the United States. Today the Ticos arrive with the hope of avoiding the playoffs and advancing directly.
Gregg Berhatler’s men come from qualifying virtually, but in any case they know they can’t afford to throw this match away; since chaos could lead them to reclassification. Therefore, they need to continue to rise ahead of the World Cup draw.
So far, only Canada is the qualified team so the USMNT needs to secure at least a draw. In addition, this match works as a test for some players to show themselves.
Don’t forget to follow all the actions by MARCA Claro USA, where the latest Concacaf tickets are defined. Plus the post for reclassification.
