"That was not our fault. I didn't call God to give us some snow. It was difficult for both teams to play that game but I think you have now a situation, Costa Rica (with) 11 points, close to the World Cup, we have 13 points, close to the World Cup. We both want to get there and I think it's going to be exciting."
-- U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann on Friday's game against
a Costa Rica fuming about the 1-0 loss in March in Colorado that went on despite snow-blizzard conditions. When the U.S. team arrived in Costa Rica on Tuesday it was greeted by fans and airport employees chanting, "No fair play, USA!" (Soccer by Ives)
