Costa Rica slowed the USA’s march toward the 2014 World Cup with a 3-1 win on Friday, while Mexico were on even shakier ground after a 2-1 loss to Honduras. Costa Rica moved to the top of the six-nation final qualifying group in North and Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF) with the victory in San Jose courtesy goals from Johnny Acosta, Celso Borges (picture) and Joel Campbell, which ended the USA’s 12-match winning streak. Two goals in the space of three minutes in the second half lifted Honduras to victory in Mexico City and into third place in the group that will see three teams advance directly.AFP
