Costa Rica vs El Salvador: Preview
Costa Rica showed the world what they can do in the 2014 World Cup where they lost out closely against the Netherlands in the quarter-finals. Since then they have struggled to reach similar heights but have a decent bunch of players in their ranks. They have had an indifferent final round of the qualifiers and are yet to win a game so far. They have had 3 low-scoring draws against Panama, Jamaica, and Honduras. Their only defeat of the campaign came against Mexico, and they are currently 6th in the table.
Like their opponents, El Salvador are also in a similar position, except that they have picked up a victory and are a place above Costa Rica on the 5th spot. Their only victory came against Panama in the last match, which snapped a winless streak of 7 matches for the North American nation. A victory against Costa Rica will propel them to the top 4 spots.
