Costa Rica coach rues conceding late goal against Germany

Of course, Los Ticos will be looking to get wins in their last two games to get a direct spot in the 2018 FIFA World Cup as opposed to a spot in the inter-confederation play-offs. The team had a celebratory lap of honour after the game, where the amount of empty seats were even more noticeable. The anguish of Honduran fans having their first World Cup since 2010 slip from the jaws of victory was almost as compelling as video of the goal. The same can not be said for Costa Rican supporters.

It will be the fifth appearance at the World Cup for the Central American side after they topped Group D, which England failed to clear, in Brazil in 2014.

Germany and Costa Rica both commit a number of mistakes during their Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup encounter on Friday, but both the coaches were not ready to put knife to their throat for committing.

Is this really all that reaching the World Cup means nowadays?

The last gasp goal was greeted by wild celebrations from players and fans alike at the National Stadium in San Jose. They must now hope to beat already-qualified Mexico and hope both Panama and the United States lose.

The chances of Honduras to hit the main event of the 2018 World Cup in connection with the defeat of Panama increased slightly.

Waston has three global goals, including a 4-yard header from Christian Bolanos' 68th-minute corner kick on March 28 that gave Costa Rica a 1-1 draw in a qualifier at Honduras.

While Waston's goal was badly needed, the reaction of the commentary team, the crowd and especially manager Oscar Ramirez was a sight to behold.
