Costa Rica ties Grenada 2-2

June 13, 2008

Costa Rica came back Saturday from two down to tie 2-2 against Grenada in a qualifier for the 2010 World Cup.

Armando Alonso scored three minutes before halftime and Víctor Nuñez marked another goal in the 75th minute after the Caribbean hosts had been reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of Ricky Charles after the break, Reuters reported.

It was a rocky first leg of a CONCACAF second preliminary for the Ticos, who have reached three of the last five World Cups.

The daily Al Día called the end result “a draw that left the taste of defeat.”

Costa Rican press is increasingly calling for a change in management as head coach Hernán Medford continues at the helm during the team’s historic no-winning streak. “Medford is on thin ice,” said the daily La Nación, which yesterday ran a large front-page photo of the coach throwing his hands up in disappointment.

The teams are set for a rematch Saturday, this time on Tico turf at the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium in the northern San José district of Tibás.
