[HEXAGONAL COUNTDOWN] The USA has injury problems -- loads of them -- heading into Friday's game against Costa Rica. As for the Ticos, their last-minute problem was administrative in nature. Mexican-based defender Johnny Acosta had to withdraw from the team for the trip to Colorado because he could not get a visa from the U.S. embassy in time for the trip.

Perez Zeledon defender Kendall Watson will replace Acosta, who joined second division Dorados de Sinaloa in January.

Acosta informed Costa Rican team administrators that it would take 15 days for the renewal of his visa to be processed.

Costa Rica Roster:
Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas (Levante, Spain), Patrick Pemberton (Alajuelense).
Defenders: Juan Diego Madrigal (Santos), Christian Gamboa (Rosenborg, Norway), Michael Umana (Saprissa), Kendall Watson (Perez Zeledon), Giancarlo Gonzalez (Valerenga, Norway), Roy Miller (New York Red Bulls) Bryan Oviedo (Everton, England),  Christopher Meneses (Alajuelense).
Midfielders: Celso Borges (AIK, Sweden), Osvaldo Rodriguez (Santos), Cristian Bolanos (FC Copenhagen, Denmark), Ariel Rodriguez (Perez Zeledon), Keylor Soto (Perez Zeledon), Yeltsin Tejeda (Saprissa), Michael Barrantes (Aalesund, Norway), Bryan Ruiz (Fulham, England), Mauricio Castillo (Cartagines), Diego Calvo (Alajuelense).
Forwards: Alvaro Saborio (Real Salt Lake), Joel Campbell (Betis, Spain), Jairo Arrieta (Columbus Crew).
