Key player of Canada

The visiting team's sensation striker is Alphonso Davies, who has given his team key victories with goals and impressive plays. 

Today, it could depend on him to help Canada take the lead and finish as the best team in the confederation. 

12:56 PM2 months ago

Key player of Costa Rica

Undoubtedly the star player of the Tico team is none other than their goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who has been fundamental for them to continue fighting for the qualification to the World Cup.

The PSG player will have to show as captain and not allow goals from a great Canadian offense.

12:51 PM2 months ago

Canada is at its best

This could be the emergence of the North American team as a great soccer power, since it has beaten the big CONCACAF teams such as Mexico and the United States. 

Currently, the maple leaf team has a streak of six consecutive victories, the last of which was against El Salvador, a team they defeated by a score of 2-0. 

12:46 PM2 months ago

Costa Rica for qualification

Tonight's home team has had a good momentum, without defeat in its last four games and with three victories. 

Today they will be looking to win for the second consecutive time, as they did against Jamaica the previous day, a team they defeated by the minimum difference thanks to Campbell's goal. 

12:41 PM2 months ago
