Canada Sliced by Costa Rica in a Game of Soccer

Canada was again left to rue a slew of missed chances as a penalty converted by Costa Rica’s Jairo Arrieta in the 16th minute proved to be the winner as Costa Rica earned a 1:0 victory in a Men’s International Friendly at Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium.

Centre-backs André Hainault and Doneil Henry had a number of headed efforts from close range for Canada – but neither defender could find the back of the net.

Both teams finished the match with 10 men after Nik Ledgerwood and Kenny Cunningham were sent off following an altercation in the 75th minute.

Costa Rican goalscorer Arrieta had a great chance to put his side ahead by two late in the second half – but his header from 15 yards crashed onto the cross-bar.
