Had to run out just got in before half time and the USA trails 1 to 0. Appears the ref has made himself the center of attention.

USA throwing everything at CR

CR starting to play dirty and ref allowing it

CR goalie one of the best in the world. He has showed why to night

USA defense has not played well tonight and just gave up goal number two

Ofiiciating has been very bad but this two goal deficit can not be blamed on them

Tough loss for the USA the first of the Bruce Arena era. They need to tun it around in a hurry as playing in Gutamala will be no picnic

Dempsey with a stupid elbow to the head should have been ref. As good Clint is he pulls this crap from time to time

USA played with little maturity and leadership, Cameron and Ream should be shown the bench NEVER to play again in those spots. It's not that Costa Rica was that good, but those 2 gave away 2 goals

Costa Rica came in with a plan to frustrate the US, and it worked, too often we stood complaining and we stopped playing as a team and looked for the calls....PLAY THE GAME and the calls will come

We deserved to lose, as we played like a bunch of spoiled 12yr olds on offense and a disjointed Kevin Cosgrove defense...they should all be ashamed of this effort

OK, maybe a little emotional, but this game was about how bad we played, not how good CR played, Navas is a BEAST in goal, but other than that, Costa Rica didn't do much to deserve the win, this game was more about what we failed at

No argument what so ever. Beyond disapointing

Two game opening losses in the HEX has given us little room for era such as this evening

I still think we qualify but third looks the best we will do
