The United States men’s national soccer team was embarrassed by Costa Rica demolishing them 4-0 in National Stadium in San Jose, Costa Rica on Tuesday for the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers. The U.S. men's team drop to an 0-2 record in the final round of World Cup qualifying for Russia 2018, worsen its competitive record in San Jose to 0-9-1 and in Costa Rica overall to 0-9-2, and extend its qualifying losing streak in the Central American nation to 31 years.

Their performance were frustrating,, error filled and disheveling. Four days ago, they also loss at home against Mexico in a narrow 2-1 game in Columbus, Ohio.

Costa Rica took the lead 2 minutes before half time when Johan Venegas rose unchallenged. In the second half, Costa Rica pushed the game and widen the lead as Christian Bolanos scored in 69 minutes and Joel Campbell got a pair of goals. The US team cannot even keep possession for long.

The result leaves Klinsmann's U.S. bottom of the six-team group alongside Trinidad and Tobago.

Costa Rica, meanwhile, top the so-called Hexagonal, the only side to win both their opening games.

The top three teams after the 10 home-and-away matches qualify automatically for Russia 2018, while the fourth-placed side goes into a play-off with a team from Asia.

Mexico, who drew 0-0 with Panama in a dull match in the isthmus, have four points, the same as Panama.
