Gregg Berhalter’s side is in desperate need of full points after an utterly embarrassing showing in Panama on Sunday. Anything less than three points in this one will leave a lot of uneasy feelings heading into November’s two-match window.

After rotating seven players into the lineup that failed in Panama, we should see a return to a somewhat normal starting eleven in this one. Two question marks for selection are Antonee Robinson and Weston McKennie who are nursing knocks picked up against Jamaica. Both players played important roles in that victory and would be a nice boost if available in this match.

One troublesome trend that needs to be thwarted is the slow starts of the U.S. as they have failed to score a first half goal in every match so far. Getting off to a fast start could alleviate a lot of stress and worry and relax the entire team.

Can the U.S. rebound from a truly awful performance just three days ago? This match will tell us a lot about the rest of the Octagonal.

How to Watch Costa Rica at United States in World Cup Qualifying

Sports Illustrated 13 October, 2021 - 03:30pm

Match Date: Oct. 13, 2021

Match Time: 6:30 p.m. ET


The loss drew Panama even with the US and kept the Americans three points back of first-place Mexico. They did catch a break with Canada playing to a 0-0 draw with Jamaica that kept them a point back.

The Americans return home Wednesday, though, with a chance to pick up three points they need. They must win at home if they want to qualify for the World Cup and that includes their next match with Costa Rica.

The win got Costa Rica within one point of Canada for fourth place. It also drew the team within two of Panama and the US. If Costa Rica can pull off the win Wednesday, it will jump the Americans.
