Costa Rica-USA at 7 p.m.; Leo Gonzalez sees draw

USSF100The USA resumes World Cup qualification this evening with a 7 p.m. match at Costa Rica. The game will be shown on the not-that-easy-to-find beIN Sport.

Preview information is avaiable at the USsoccer and MLSsoccer websites.

Sounders Eddie Johnson and Clint Dempsey will be in uniform for the USA.

Meanwhile, as the Sounders continue training for their 7 p.m. Saturday match against the Chicago Fire, we asked Costa Rican defender Leo Gonzalez about the international match.

"I think a very good game for both teams," he said. "Difficult game. Costa Rica, the fans support a lot the national team. And for both team it’s difficult. They are in good position – USA in the first position, Costa Rica in the second position – so it’s a good, good game for Costa Rica. They need to win because they are at home. They want to get quickly the qualification for the World Cup."

His prediction: "I think it’s a tie game: 1-1 or 0-0."
