Sergino Dest couldn’t stop the cross that led to Costa Rica’s shock opener in Ohio, but he more than made up for it with his second USMNT goal.
The first one was a highlight-reel marker, too, coming in a 4-1 friendly win over Jamaica in March, but the stakes under this banger were much, much higher.
Los Ticos led 1-0 on a first-minute goal that saw questionable decisions by any number of defenders — chief among them Weston McKennie — and both Timothy Weah and McKennie had decent opportunities to make it 1-1.

Dest, however, achieved the feat with an absolute rocket from distance, hit with so much venom that it barely had time to rotate.

The Yanks are looking for nothing less than a win and a good performance Wednesday, and right now would settle for the former at any cost.

McDavid scores 200th goal in Oilers 5-1 win over Coyotes
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Connor McDavid scored twice to eclipse 200 career goals and had an assist, Zach Hyman had two goals and the Edmonton Oilers remained undefeated with a 5-1 victory over the winless Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night.
The Oilers were sharp in their first regular-season in the U.S. since March 5, 2020, due to the pandemic, scoring at least five goals for the third straight game.
McDavid scored in the second period to hit the 200-goal mark — two days after teammate Leon Draisaitl reached the milestone — and scored his sixth goal in four games in the third. He has multiple points in every game this season and 11 overall.
Mikko Koskinen had 25 saves in his first start since Mike Smith went on injured reserve with a lower-body injury. Warren Foegele also scored for Edmonton.
Dysin Mayo scored in his NHL debut and Karel Vejmelka stopped 26 shots for the 0-3-1 Coyotes. They allowed at least five goals for the third time this season.
The Coyotes were good in their own end early after first-year coach Alex Tourigny switched up his defensive pairings against Edmonton.
That changed late in the first period, when Foegele used some nifty stickhandling to get around Mayo and beat Vejmelka to the stick side.
The goals kept coming for the Oilers.
Hyman scored a shorthanded goal early in the second, when he kept the puck on a 2-on-1 and beat Vejmelka to the glove side. McDavid made it 3-0 midway through the period, working his way around Coyotes Johan Larsson before whipping a shot past Vejmelka from the right circle.
Arizona finally got to Koskinen early in the third period, when Mayo gathered Ryan Dzingel’s cross-ice pass and beat him from the right circle.
The momentum didn’t last. Hyman scored on a redirect of a pass from McDavid on a power play and McDavid added his 201st goal a few minutes later on another power play.
Oilers: At Vegas on Friday night.
Coyotes: Hosts the New York Islanders on Saturday night.
