SUR vs CRC: Suriname will play their second group stage match of the CONCACAF Gold Cup against Costa Rica. The match will be played at Exploria Stadium in Orlando.
In the last match they played, Suriname faced a disappointing loss against the Jamaicans. Strikers, Shamar Nicholson and Bobby Reid, both registered their names on the scorecard as they bagged a goal each right before the end of the first half.
After an eventful 45 minutes, the battle was intense in the second half but not convincing enough for Suriname as they lost 2-0 to Jamaica.
Costa Rica on the other hand has a happy dugout walking into this encounter with a win against Guadeloupe backing them up. Ex-Arsenal player Joel Campbell and Ariel Lassiter provided the dream start with a 2-0 lead inside 21 minutes.
Guadeloupean striker Raphael Mirval tried to bring his side back in the game with a goal in the 45+5th minute. Despite all efforts, Costa Rica’s Celso Borges made it 3-1 and went cruising through to claim a comfortable win for his team and bagged 3 crucial points.
Costa Rica is walking in as favourites to win this upcoming encounter and remain on the top of the Group’s points table.
