United States: Since they have already secured their place in the World Cup, the team has now shifted their focus towards qualifying for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris and the 2024 Gold Cup. A win against Costa Rica means the team is one step closer to their other goals, to win the tournament and get a place in further competitions.

The Concacaf W Championship team stage gave a lot of looks to many players before the knockout rounds. Player rotation has been a key part of head coach Vlatko Andonovksi throughout the tournament, partly in an effort to keep the team fresh, avoid injuries and assess almost all of his roster. Rose Lavelle was on the receiving end of a crushing late-game tackle in the final group match against Mexico, but ended the game when USWNT won, 1-0. There is a possibility that he will not be available or in limited minutes, but the situation is not familiar for USWNT, as the team has navigated various long-term injuries. The team made a roster adjustment, pulling Ashley Hatch out of the tournament with a back injury, calling on Sam Coffey as an extra player. The move is not the same in position because Hatch is a center forward and Coffey is a center defensive mid. Expect more experienced players to have a role in the knockout match against Costa Rica.

Costa Rica: Head coach Amelia Valverde and her team have already clinched their place in the 2023 World Cup, returning to the tournament after making their debut in 2015 and losing in 2019. The team has never participated in an Olympic Games in the history of their program, and they will be motivated by the opportunity in front of them.

Despite the possibility, Las Ticas battled against USWNT, losing all 16 of their previous matches. The most recent game against USWNT was in February 2020 during Olympic qualifying, which Costa Rica lost 6-0. They could take a page from Mexico’s playbook, where La Tri kept USWNT without a score for 89 minutes in their last group game, but they will need to take their chances when possible. Look for Katherine Alvarado to try and make an impact for the team as the Costa Rican captain has two goals for the team in this tournament and has the ability to connect with teammates as well as three assists on the group stage.
