Late goal helps ten-man Costa Rica beat Curaçao, 2-1

November 14, 2019

Francisco Calvo’s 84th-minute goal was the winning margin for the Costa Rica men’s national soccer team as it earned a 2-1 victory over Curaçao on Thursday at Ergilio Hato Stadium in Willemstad.

Calvo’s skying header was an unlikely finish to a match that had been dominated by the Caribbeans after Ricardo Blanco was sent off with a second yellow card in the 64th minute.

With the result, Costa Rica has moved into first place of its CONCACAF Nations League group with one match remaining.

La Sele will face Haiti on Sunday at Ricardo Saprissa Stadium in Tibás with a chance to advance from Group D with a win or draw.
