Colombia vs. Costa Rica, score update: Ticos take two-goal lead

Heading into Saturday's Copa America Centenario action, it seemed like the advancement scenarios were reasonably well set: If Colombia and the United States simply secured a single point apiece, they'd go in as the Group A winner and runners-up, respectively. The United States took care of their part, beating Paraguay.

But Costa Rica has managed to make Group A very interesting, despite coming into their game eliminated. Los Ticos jumped out to an early lead with a 2nd minute goal, went ahead again on an own-goal and now lead 3-1 after Celso Borges scored this beauty.

If Costa Rica can hold on, that would mean that the USA wins Group A and would play the Group B runners-up in Seattle on Thursday. That would most likely be Ecuador, but could still be Brazil.
