Video: Brek Shea scores game-winning goal against Costa Rica

On Tuesday night the United States men’s national soccer team bested Costa Rica 1-0 in its final match of group play in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. After struggling offensively for most of the match, the U.S. finally tallied a goal in the 82nd minute to take the lead.

Brek SheaThe U.S. finally scored off a counter-attack, after keeper Sean Johnson made a gorgeous save, parrying a header from Carlos Johnson into the crossbar. U.S. midfielder Joe Corona then corralled the ball and found Landon Donovan midway up the field. Donovan then lofted a perfect pass ahead to a streaking Brek Shea. Shea, who came on as a late substitute, controlled the ball, then pounded it past Costa Rican goalkeeper Patrick Pemberton for a goal.

It was Shea’s first international goal and provided a badly needed boost to his prospects with the national team.

The Americans didn’t need to win the match, a draw would have cinched up the top spot in Group C, but the win feels much sweeter. It was the U.S.’s record-breaking eighth consecutive win, and they are the only team in the Gold Cup to have won all three of its first-round matches.
