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.
Celso Borges gives Costa Rica a 2-goal cushion. If they hold on, #USMNT win Group A. #COLvCRC #MyCopaColors https://t.co/5thknYoJQ5— FOX Soccer (@FOXSoccer) June 12, 2016
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.
