With kickoff approximately six hours away, it is time to start making those last-minute phone calls and preparations as the United States men's national team takes on Costa Rica in the only World Cup qualifier being played today.
The match, slated to start at 10pm ET on ESPN2 and Galavision, pits the top two teams in the CONCACAF standings against one another in a battle for first place. The United States has never won at Saprissa Stadium in qualifying and tonight might be their last opportunity to do so as Saprissa is set to close next fall.
Where will Ives be tonight? At no other venue than Saprissa Stadium of course. As for me? Well, I'll be watching the game from home as I missed out on my chance to fly to Costa Rica.
Tell us where YOU will be watching the game tonight and for fun, throw in a prediction or two in the comments section below.
