The U.S. men’s national team’s Conca Cuff World Cup qualifying against Costa Rica on Wednesday may have made the worst possible start after Tychos scored in the first minute, but the surprising start is for Americans. Did not prevent the most complete performance from the octagonal date.
The Americans, along with Sergiño Dest’s dynamic exploits, completely outperformed Costa Rica for most of the next 89 minutes, led by a dominant display from the midfield.
Although Ticos had a clear experience advantage, the USMNT continued to manage the proceedings in the Lower.com field, showing impressive calm despite being such a young group.
Dest was the beginning of the show and won a stunning equalizer before helping to set the final game victory goal, but there were some other outstanding performances as well. Yunus Musah showed off all the qualities he considers to be one of the youngest prospects in the program, and Weston McKennie enjoyed the best show since the Conca-Cafe Nations League final.
With all this in mind, the USMNT’s 2-1 winning player’s rating against Costa Rica is as follows:
Zack Steffen (6)
Costa Rica’s goal didn’t look good, but it seems he couldn’t see the shot until it was too late to react. I made one top-level save and was relatively stable the rest of the night.
Sergino Dest (8)
His mysterious goal was a night moment, but Dest was active all the time, and he shared some accusations on Costa Rica’s goal, but he rebounded well and while being a consistent threat to the attack. Handled his defensive responsibility.
Miles Robinson (7)
Looks like the dominant Gold Cup version of Miles Robinson on Wednesday, winning seven out of nine duels and poses a lot of threats. He had one bat turnover that led to a Costa Rican attack, but cleared up his mistakes the night he won 11 recovery, four clearances and four aerial battles.
Chris Richards (6)
Relatively quiet, but stable performance at the World Cup qualifying debut. He cleaned the ball, completed 90% of the passes, and contributed six defensive recovery. Overall, it encourages the first taste of young centre-back qualifiers.
Antonee Robinson (6.5)
Not very effective against attacks, but active and energetic performance. Robinson tried 13 crosses, but only 2 times. Defensively, he didn’t win one duel, but ended up with seven recovery.
Tyler Adams (7.5)
There were 102 touches among the team leaders and it was very effective in the middle. His seven duels won and five recovery shows how active he was. Adams completed 80 of the 90 passes, and 52 of the 80 passes were in half of the attacking side of the field.
Yunus Musah (7.5)
Enjoyed the best performance ever as a USMNT player. He stared at the ball smoothly, dribbled easily from the pressure, and helped connect things along the way, making things look easier. He completed 90% of his 52 passes and flaunted his range by connecting with some long passes as well as propelling the attack with 41 completed passes in half of the attack.
Weston McKennie (7.5)
McKennie was everywhere, the main driving force behind USMNT’s response to Costa Rica’s early goals and its late start. He finished the game with 119 touches of Game High and a whopping 16 recovery, completing an impressive 11 of the 12 long balls and hunting down Costa Rica for most of the game.
Timothy Weah (7)
I had a quiet night before the sequence, so I scored a goal just before the garment went down. The reel winger deserved the goal, flaunting speed and quality. -The winner was dominated by own goals, which was a very ware goal.
Ricardo Peppy (6.5)
Peppy could only make one shot, but was effective in hold-up play and press, could be deeply depressed and combined, and could even provide a pair of key passes.
Brenden Aaronson (6)
Red Bull Salzburg’s outstanding performance was rather modest and not as effective as usual in the attack, but Aaronson contributed defensive power to Front 3 and won 5 recovery and 3 duels. I did.
Matthew Hoppe (6.5)
I played for only 17 minutes and was still able to create a keypass pair.
DeAndre Yedlin (6)
He came to the end of the last 17 minutes, won one duel and contributed to the tackle while completing all 11 passes.
Gianluca Busio (6.5)
A 12-minute sharp cameo appearance as the Venetian midfielder made 28 touches and completed 90% of the 20 passes. He also won the duel because he easily dominated the tired Costa Rican midfield.
Walker Zimmerman (NR)
I played in just 4 minutes.
Gyasi Zardes (NR)
Playing in just three minutes, the Columbus audience gave a big round of applause.
