Costa Rica have reached out to Matias Almeyda to discuss their national team coaching opening.

Former Chivas coach Matias Almeyda has had talks with Costa Rica about coaching their national team and said he has not had any other formal approaches.

MOSCOW -- The head of North American soccer says the region's teams need until 2026 at a home World Cup to reach their full potential.

"All in all, I think it's par for the course," CONCACAF President Victor Montagliani said Tuesday of the region's performance in Russia.

Switzerland advanced to the knockout stage of the World Cup despite allowing a late lead to slip away in a 2-2 draw with Costa Rica in their Group E finale.

Josip Drmic thought he'd scored the winner for Switzerland in the 88th minute, but the Central American side were able to earn a point after a penalty in stoppage time.

Prematch attention had focused on Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri's politicised "Albanian eagle" celebrations in Switzerland's last game, and Costa Rica being the only team without...
