Costa Rica Sports – Costa Rica played their hardest but they have a long way to go if they want to play with the World Cup Champion USA.
Unfortunately for the Costa Rica women’s team, no matter how much they might have prepared, there was absolutely no way to defend against Carli Lloyd’s opening goal against them. It was just too good.
Playing in the USA’s latest international friendly with the Central American nation, New Jersey-born Lloyd stood over a sixth-minute free kick. She proceeded to arrow it into the top corner from thirty yards before the ball bounced all around the goal with the sheer force of the hit. Bosh!
It must have been pretty demoralizing for the Costa Rican ladies, because they went on to lose by an emphatic 7-2 scoreline.
