Pic of the Day: Finally, a goal!

June 17, 2019

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:
