Costa Rica mauls USA, 3-1

Costa Rica scored goals -- beautiful goals -- in the second and 13th minutes, and as a practical matter, that was that. The insult came in the 69th minute, as Costa Rica just make the US look silly, literally running a circle through the penalty area before finishing.

The lone U.S. goal came on a Landon Donovan penalty kick in stoppage time.

The surface looked like the stuff the Sounders used to play on at Memorial Stadium, but that's no excuse. This was a whipping, and as a result, Costa Rica moves to the top of the CONCACAF qualifying table.

The USA returns to World Cup qualifying against Honduras on Saturday in Chicago.
