If international soccer had a season, the United States' would have come to a crashing halt on Saturday. The loss to Mexico would have been the end of it. But that's not how things work and in a month, the Americans will start World Cup qualifying so they need to turn things around. They need to get right. And they will try to do that against Costa Rica tonight when they square off in a friendly that marks the Americans' last match before qualifying.
Jurgen Klinsmann has shaken things up from Saturday, sending eight players back to their clubs and called up five on Sunday. Then he threw a new twist into things, kicking Fabian Johnson off the team because he was unhappy with what happened at the end of the CONCACAF Cup contest.
The match kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET and will be televised live on ESPN. Ian Darke and Taylor Twellman will handle the call from Red Bull Arena, while Bob Ley and Kasey Keller will do the halftime show, as well as pre and post-game spots on SportsCenter.
UniMas will handled the Spanish-language broadcast, while Watch ESPN will have it streaming.
