THE PREDICTION

The United States come into this on the back of a frankly incredible and much discussed 3-2, after extra time, victory over Mexico in the inaugural CONCACAF Nations League final. The Americans had been relatively outplayed for 80 or so minutes before a Weston McKennie equaliser helped Gregg Berhalter’s side take the match into extra time. That means it is now just one defeat in 12 matches in all competitions for the US as they come up against a Costa Rica side that have gradually declined since 2014 and 2018. Their third-place playoff defeat to Honduras at the weekend means they are winless in nine matches since 2019 and have won just one of their last 14. The hosts will come into this as favourites although it is likely to be a rotated side due to the upcoming Gold Cup.
