Bedoya Slide Tackled to Ground, Called for Foul

By the time the US and Costa Rica have reached th 69th minute in their match in Hartford, CT as part of Group C play in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, it was clear that these were the two best teams in the group.

Live match report:

Since the middle of the first half, the USA men have been attacking heavily.

Just a few minutes into the second half, the CR goalkeeper Pemberton came out of his area to head away the ball. The header was captured by a USA player, who then took a shot on goal. While still standing outside the penalty area, Pemberton blocked the shot with his outstretched hands. The referee from Jamaica only awarded a yellow card.
