Pic of the Day: Finally, a goal!
Costa Rica found some much-needed offensive firepower Sunday night in a 4-0 victory over Nicaragua.
La Sele scored early and often, a welcome sight for a team that had done so only once over its four previous games.
With the commanding win, Costa Rica is atop Group B and has put itself in position to advance to the tournament’s quarterfinal round:
Costa Rica faces Bermuda on Thursday in Frisco, Texas, and Haiti next Monday at Red Bull Arena outside New York City.
