Costa Rica and Panama get the knockout rounds of the 2017 Gold Cup started. In principle, Los Ticos are favorites to progress to the semifinals, but the squad has been hit by a succession of injuries. Rodney Wallace is the latest casualty, and this tournament is an increasingly challenging test of the theory that Costa Rica has one of the deeper player pools in CONCACAF.
