US vs. Costa Rica 2022 World Cup Qualifiers: Time, TV Schedule and Lineups

The United States men’s national team somehow goes to Qatar. The last day of play in Costa Rica will determine when and how. Now that a spot in the intercontinental play-off has been secured, all the USA need to do is avoid complete humiliation in the form of a six-goal loss to Los Ticos to secure an automatic berth.

Several players are returning from a yellow card suspension and should give Gregg Berhalter plenty of formation options to work with. It will be interesting to see which direction he takes for both the starting lineup and the overall mindset of the team. It’s not often you see a scenario like this and there isn’t much of a written script to follow.

Nevertheless, the USMNT are 90 minutes away from calling themselves World Cup participants for the first time in eight years. Here’s to hoping it’s a smooth ride without a lot of hitches or aches.
