Costa Rica 3-1 USA
90+2' - Altidore picks up a yellow and he will miss Mexico match too. Absolute disaster for the U.S. tonight.
89' - Aron Johannsson comes in in what seems like a pointless substitution by Klinsmann. He could have cap-tied Brooks right there.
88' - Eddie Johnson gets cleared out by Navas. Not a foul, but a nasty collision.
86' - Cameron earns a wide free kick. Maybe one last-gasp hope for the U.S.
A lot of problems/questions for the U.S. going forward.
Will Michael Bradley be healthy for Mexico?
Who starts at center-back with both Besler and Cameron suspended?
Who starts at right-back considering Cameron is suspended and Orozco was less than spectacular?
Should Guzan start instead of Howard?
Should Fabian Johnson be pushed back into the defense?
80' - Alvaro Saborio on for Ruiz.
By the way, Mexico has lost to Honduras at the Azteca.
78' - Besler cautioned and now he will miss the Mexico match.
There will be plenty of questions regarding Jurgen Klinsmann's decisions tonight.
75' - Goal Campbell. Costa Rica seals it.
71' - Altidore now coming in for Fabian Johnson.
70' Donovan with a great ball to Dempsey, but it is headed towards Navas with little power.
65' - Cameron loses possession and a last-ditch tackle by Omar Gonzalez is needed to bail the U.S. out.
63' - And it goes wide.
62' - Geoff Cameron cautioned and he will miss the Mexico game.
However, the U.S.' immediate concern will be the free kick coming up.
60' - the Costa Ricans continue to test the U.S.' right-side.
59' - EJ in for Zusi.
58' - Eddie Johnson set to come in, but for who?
57' - Brilliant run by Donovan to find Dempsey at the top of the box. Shot off the post!
55' - Orozco with a courageous (i.e. near-suicidal) sliding challenge in the box to kill off a Costa Rican counter.
55' - Donovan and Dempsey combine for a nice play, but it's ruined with a terrible touch by Fabian Johnson.
53' - Donovan puts in a gorgeous ball for Zusi, but Navas is well off his line to snuff it out.
52' - And the Costa Ricans clear the danger.
51' - Orozco earns a corner for the U.S.
