Costa Rica's opening-round loss to El Salvador was unexpected, but a loss to Trinidad and Tobago would be even more surprising.
The Soca Warriors didn't lose their opening game, but they failed to put away Bermuda - and conceded an almost embarrassing equalizer.
New York Red Bulls Academy product Noah Powder should play a prominent tole for T&T in this game. But if his team is to be given much chance of staying at this tournament beyond the group stage, it will need at least a tie against Costa Rica.
For Los Ticos, it would be beyond embarrassing to be effectively eliminated from the competition after two games. The Soca Warriors can expect a highly-motivated opponent as the host nation seeks to hang on to its place in the tournament.
