Costa Rica reach CONCACAF Gold Cup semis

Buried in the 24 hours of soccer programming that filled the Sirius/XM FC channel Thursday - you can be sure it didn't come during the period when England's TalkSport is simulcast - was a short comment from an esteemed soccer writer just before completing his guest segment that has continued to bounce its way through my brain.

Gonzalez is one of many eligible to represent both countries, a fact that isn't lost on him. The duo started the U.S. MNT's first and third group stage matches against Panama and Nicaragua, respectively, but were rested for the second group stage match against Martinique as well as Wednesday's quarterfinal win over El Salvador.

This is the first match of a Gold Cup doubleheader on Wednesday. [Marco] Urena has done well as a striker.

How can you tune in to Saturday night's semifinal match? The match in San Jose, Costa Rica, which ended in a 4-0 thumping, unleashed a wave of angst among fans and cost Jurgen Klinsmann his job.

Costa Rica figures to be the toughest test yet, but Arena said his team's point of emphasis on offense will be the same as always. That would mean a playoff against the fifth-place team from Asia in November for the right to go to Russia.

Will El Salvador try and take it to the US? It's scheduled to start at 8:15 pm in Arlington, Dallas. Gyasi Zardes - a player of similar quality to Corona - was another player that underperformed against El Salvador, which may lead head coach Bruce Arena to make some changes ahead of the semi-final clash. Bradley also earned his 134th cap to tie Agoos for fourth.

Both of these teams have a lot to play for.

The United States overcame a battling display from El Salvador on Wednesdy to advance to a CONCACAF Gold Cup semi-final showdown with Costa Rica here.

CONCACAF's big three want very badly to grow into true contenders on the world stage. Don't be surprised if Kellyn Acosta joins the U.S. starting lineup to help the effort. Canada is finally a threat.

But Ruiz will still be there, and so will the history of drama and tension between the two nations.

Larin is back for the Canadians. We controlled large parts of the game. Regardless, this could be a tight affair that ends up being decided by one play. "Dry" managed to beat Honduras (0: 1) and French Guiana (3: 0). Only five players from that game are set for this semifinal game - Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore, Matt Besler, Omar Gonzalez and Graham Zusi.

While the all-time series between the two sides is pretty tight, the USA has dominated the Gold Cup contests, going 6-0-1 in seven all-time meetings at the confederation championship.

A win over the Ticos would send a stronger message.
