The qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup are getting ready in the best possible way... The United States team confirmed that they will have a friendly match against Costa Rica on June 9 in Utah. The match is scheduled to take place after the Concacaf Nations League concludes.
The USMNT detailed in a statement that the duel against the Ticos is added to the series of matches that are scheduled against Switzerland and the League of Nations. In addition, it has a short rest period between commitments, as Team USA seeks a calendar rhythm similar to the one it would have in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
On the other hand, the property designated for this match is the Rio Tinto Stadium and around 10,000 spectators will be able to attend to support the 'Stars and Stripes' team. Although at the moment there is no date for people to purchase their tickets.
"Costa Rica is a competitive Concacaf team and we look forward to this opportunity. It is an important step in our preparation for the start of the World Ranking," reported coach Gregg Berhalter.
The last time these teams met was on the way to 2018 World Cup, when in both games of the hexagonal, the Costa Ricans beat the USA. In Costa Rica the score was 4-0, while on North American soil the result was 0-2.
