Tim Weah scored his second worldwide aim within the 66th minute after Sergiño Dest began the comeback from a first-minute deficit, and the United States rallied previous Costa Rica 2-1 on Wednesday evening to ease strain as World Cup qualifying neared the midway level.

Weah switched the ball to Musah on the fitting flank, and he handed to Dest. Given time and house, Dest took three touches as he lower towards the middle. Dest curled the ball round Mattarita with a left-foot shot simply past the fitting hand of Navas for his second worldwide aim.

The U.S. practically allowed one other aim when Miles Robinson made a poor, gradual backpass for Richards within the 56th minute that was intercepted by Ruiz. The 36-year-old Ruiz broke in alone on Steffen however lacks tempo at his age, and Robinson was capable of catch up and poke the ball away.
