Costa Rica vs. USMNT Score: USA loses but still qualifies for 2022 FIFA World Cup

Bestinau got that-

Despite a 2-0 defeat to Costa Rica on Wednesday, the United States men’s national team qualified for the 2022 World Cup and returned for the first time since 2014. in the second half it was goals from Juan Pablo Vargas and Anthony Contreras eight minutes apart that took Los Ticos to a comfortable victory.

Costa Rica will face New Zealand in the Interconfederation playoffs this summer for a spot in the World Cup.

US boss Gregg Berhalter put what were largely his strongest players on the field, and they came close to scoring several times in the first half, but Costa Rica’s superstar goalkeeper Keylor Navas came to the fore time and again. It was a negative display and an overall negative result, but it was still a monumental day for a team eager to return to the world’s biggest podium and finish third in the Concacaf table.

CBS Sports will update this story.
