  • Five things the U.S. needs to do to beat Costa Rica tonight (9 p.m. ET, beIN Sports).

  • How would you line the team up tonight?

  • The U.S. is 0-8-1 all-time in World Cup Qualifying matches on Costa Rican soil. The only draw came back in 1985.
  • USA TODAY Sports did a terrific interview with Bob Bradley on his legacy as the national team coach: “The work and the results stand for themselves. In the U.S., I don’t think we got enough credit. Our subtle ideas, how we were hard to play against, how we closed down, how we created chances, our movement, our identity, how we were improving in those years. Many people didn’t see that. Some people just missed out on what our football was about.”

  • There's little doubt about Jermaine Jones' spot in the U.S. team, Grant Wahl writes.
