Gold Cup: Canada hold Costa Rica to win Group A

11 July 2009 03:58

Canada secured the top spot in Group A of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, drawing 2-2 with Costa Rica this Friday. Costa Rica now depend on results in other matches.

The Canadians had already won their first two games and were certain of a spot in the quarter finals. Against Costa Rica, things initially didn't go as planned as Herron sent a lob over keeper Sutton in the 23rd minute.

But the North Americans reacted fast and Bernier levelled just two minutes later. A great strike from Marcel de Jong even made it 2-1 to Canada in minute 28.

But Costa Rica had the final say as a well-taken free kick from Walter Centeno set the score to 2-2, which would turn out to be the final result.

With seven points from three games, Canada can no longer be surpassed in this group. Costa Rica depend on the result of the match between El Salvador and Jamaica and, likely on those of matches in other groups this weekend.
