The weather, the setting, and the cast was different, but the result was the same as the United States men's national team beat Costa Rica 1-0 in Hartford, Conn on a late Brek Shea goal.
A fantastic save from Sean Johnson led to a counter-attack break away by Landon Donovan on the right. He lofted the ball to Shea in stride down the center of the field and the Stoke City man collected the ball and fired the U.S. into the lead. It was Shea first international goal.
The USMNT will face El Salvador in the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup on Sunday at 5pm ET.
