The U.S. Men’s National Team can’t clinch a spot in Russia on Friday night, but a win over Costa Rica at Red Bull Arena would go a long way towards booking a spot at the 2018 World Cup.
In the aftermath of this summer’s Gold Cup run, the U.S. returns to World Cup qualifying on Friday night still with some work to do heading towards the final four matches. Entering Friday’s match, the U.S. sits third in the Hexagonal, trailing Mexico and Los Ticos while maintaining a one-point gap fourth-place Panama.
