Before you bet on the Costa Rica vs. USA match or make any 2022 Concacaf World Cup Qualifying predictions, you HAVE TO see what consummate soccer insider Roger Gonzalez has to say.
Gonzalez is an award-winning writer who has covered pro soccer from Europe to South America. Gonzalez started out his pro soccer writing career while in college at Virginia Tech, writing for Goal.com. He's also covered the Copa America, Champions League, Copa Libertadores, and much more. Since 2015, he's been the lead soccer writer for CBS Sports.
The Americans should be highly motivated after Sunday's disappointing showing, and Gregg Berhalter should return to the lineup that beat Jamaica 2-0 last week. That would mean featuring Ricardo Pepi, who scored both goals in that match. The 18-year-old Texas native has three goals and set up another in three qualifying appearances.
Los Ticos have a veteran-laden squad, with 11 players boasting at least 50 international appearances. Midfieders Bryan Ruiz and Celso Borges lead the way, and both scored in Sunday's win against El Salvador. Keylor Navas is one of the world's best goalkeepers and is part of the experienced core that has reached the last two World Cups.
Now, Gonzalez has taken an in-depth look at the USMNT vs. Costa Rica showdown and revealed his best bet for the 2022 Concacaf World Cup Qualifying match. You should see his picks before locking in any of your own.
