CONCACAF Championship: Canada-Costa Rica preview

Costa Rica’s Rachel Rodriguez and Canada’s Kadeisha Buchanan have a history: Rodriguez won the MAC Hermann Trophy as the NCAA player of the year in 2015, beating out Buchanan, who won the award in 2016. Rodriguez is playing as a striker in the tournament and will go against a Buchanan-led backline that has yet to concede a goal.

Canada leads Group B with six points, while Costa Rica and Jamaica have three points each after the Reggae Girlz upset the Central American country with a 1-0 win Monday. Canada will take the group with a win or tie, likely avoiding a semifinal meeting with the United States. In the case of a loss, the team is still likely to advance — possibly in first place, thanks to goal difference. The Canadians currently lead the tournament with 14 goals, 66 shots and 10 assists.
