FRISCO, Texas.- Costa Rica and Bermuda will meet on Thursday night at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas for their second game in Group B of the 2019 Gold Cup and their first ever Gold Cup match-up in history.
Costa Rica got the job done with a 4-0 win in its opening match against Nicaragua and currently sit atop the standings in Group B, while Bermuda is third following its 2-1 loss to Haiti.
Los Ticos will now look to repeat what it did in North Texas in the 2017 Gold Cup, when it won 3-0 against French Guiana.
Allan Cruz led the way with a goal and assist in the win vs. Nicaragua, while Elias Aguilar also chipped in a goal.
Bermuda, who played at a fast pace and enjoyed a lot of ball possession during the first half against Haiti, will be looking for its first win against Costa Rica.
Captain Dante Leverock had the lone goal with an assist from Osagi Bascome, proving that the Bermuda defense can be an attacking weapon.
Zeiko Lewis, who had three shots against Haiti, will be looking to add to his total of four goals in the last five games, but it will be Bermuda’s defense that will be the key to give Bermuda its first win in the 2019 Gold Cup.
