Godoy own goal sends Costa Rica into Gold Cup semi-finals

Godoy own goal sends Costa Rica into Gold Cup semi-finals

Costa Rica has yet to win in the States, after 26 years of history. I don't think we can come out like we did today in the first 30 and escape without giving up goals.

MetLife Stadium is the home of the New York Jets and New York Giants from the NFL.

Twenty minutes earlier Salvadoran defender Henry Romero had bitten U.S. forward Jozy Altidore, then twisted his nipple, as both players jockeyed for position ahead of a corner kick. A similar performance vs. Costa Rica could result in an unexpected semifinal loss.

"It's good to get the win". It was an 88 minute goal by the US that sealed their group win on goals scored over Panama - the US missed two penalties in the 3-0 win against Nicaragua.

The additions give the US squad a more familiar look than the experimental lineups that featured in the group stage.

CONCACAF Gold Cup action continues Wednesday, July 19 as Costa Rica faces Panama in Gold Cup quarterfinal action in Philadelphia.

"They have a clear advantage because [the Gold Cup] comes in the middle of their domestic season", said manager Oscar Ramirez during a pre-tournament presser.

The Ticos will also be without superstar forward Joel Campbell, of English power Arsenal.

"It's not [as big as a] World Cup qualifier, but we have to play like this is our last game", said midfielder David Guzman.

"Hopefully we can remember that", said current coach Bruce Arena, who is undefeated in his 12-game tenure. This precedes United States vs. El Salvador.

Costa Rica had a chance to take the lead early in the second half, but Bryan Ruiz attempt off a terrific back-heel pass by Marco Ureña was parried away by goalkeeper Jose Calderon for a corner kick.

Another key factor will be the teams' familiarity with each other.
