The El Salvador national team will face the Costa Rica national team in 2nd round of the Concacaf Gold Cup on Friday, June 30, 2023. Live streaming of El Salvador vs Costa Rica, preview, lineup predictions, and how to watch the match live broadcast, can be watched in this article.
The El Salvador national team disappointed in the opening match of the 2023 Gold Cup by losing 1-2 to Martinique despite having a superior number of players throughout the second half. This is their sixth defeat in the last seven matches. Overall, El Salvador has gone nine straight games without a win.
In the 2023 Gold Cup, El Salvador brought a squad with the best players playing in Major League Soccer (MLS). They are Dayne St. Clair (Minnesota United), Jonathan Osorio (Toronto FC), Richie Laryea (Toronto FC) and Kamal Miller (Inter Miami). However, they have not been able to show collective strength and consistency on the field.
Meanwhile, Costa Rica also showed poor performance when they lost 1-2 to Panama in the first game. This is their fourth straight loss. In the last eight matches, they have only won twice and lost six times.
Costa Rica is expected to perform well in the 2023 Gold Cup, although not as successful as the United States and Mexico. This is natural because Costa Rica has just participated in the 2022 World Cup and has experienced goalkeeper Keylor Navas in their squad. In addition, they also rely on experienced players such as Celso Borges (160 caps), Francisco Calvo (82 caps) and Kendall Waston (71 caps).
If you look at the meeting record, El Salvador is very far behind from Costa Rica. Of the 54 previous meetings, they have only won eight times, while losing 34 times to their opponents. The remaining 12 matches ended in a draw. Apart from that, El Salvador also lost twice in a row to Costa Rica, each with a score of 1-2.
