The United States men’s national team was in an epic, snowy battle against Costa Rica on Friday night in a World Cup Qualifier that will go down in USA soccer history because of the incredible storm that the game was played through. There was some controversy over whether or not the game should be finished because of the conditions, but it was decided that the game should be played on.
After the game, the USA soccer team took to their official Instagram account to share a brilliant picture. The account sent out a picture of a little tribute the team decided to do to commemorate the game in Denver.
The team came together and signed one of the shovels that was used to clear off the lines during the game. Here is the photo the USA soccer team shared:
This has to be one of the most excellent and fitting tributes I have seen for a game.
All of the players toughed it out in the conditions to secure a 1-0 win to get the Yankees one step closer to clinching a berth in the 2014 World Cup. Team USA’s next qualifying match comes against Mexico on March 26, in a game that is sure to be physical and full of emotions.
