Costa Rica preserved its outright lead in second-place ahead of the United States with a 2-1 win against Trinidad and Tobago in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying on Tuesday night.
The hosts took the lead from a corner kick in the first minute, with Francisco Calvo heading home from Joel Campbell's cross.
But T&T clawed one back through Kevin Molino in the 35th minute, as the Minnesota United player fired home a Joevin Jones pass from just outside Costa Rica's penalty area.
Christian Pulisic scored twice as the United States defeated Trinidad & Tobago 2-0 in a crucial CONCACAF World Cup qualifier in Commerce City, Colorado on Thursday.
The in-form Borussia Dortmund midfielder scored in the 52nd and 62nd minutes to set the stage for the Americans' upcoming match at rival Mexico, who top the group table, on Sunday.
The win gives Bruce Arena's side, who came into the night in fourth place, seven points from five matches, while last-placed T&T sit on three points.
