[BEACH SOCCER] The USA beat Costa Rica, 4-2, to qualify for the fourth time for the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, which will be held Sept. 18-28 at To'ata Stadium in Papeete, Tahiti.

The USA will join El Salvador, which advanced past Mexico 1-0 in sudden-death penalties after playing to a 3-3 draw in regulation and overtime, at the World Cup.

The USA overcame a 2-0 deficit on goals by Nick Perera, Francis Farberoff, Lewie Valentine and Anthony Chimienti. USA goalkeeper Chris Toth came up huge down the stretch, stopping four Costa Rica shots during the final three minutes.

Perera scored two more goals in the final, including the overtime winner, to give the USA a 5-4 win over El Salvador on Sunday at the Malcolm Park Beach Soccer and Futsal Facility. He finished with a tournament-high 11 goals.

USA also advanced to the 2005, 2006 and 2007 finals.
