USA take on Costa Rica in the 2016 Copa America Centenario Group A clash at Soldier Field, Chicago on 7 June.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 1am BST (on Wednesday). Premier Sports will provide live coverage of the game in the UK.


Both USA and Costa Rica failed to win their opening matches as the host nation lost to Colombia 2-0, while Costa Rica were forced to settle for a goalless draw against Paraguay.

A defeat for USA on Tuesday is likely to end their hopes of qualifying for the next round of the tournament. Clint Dempsey has stressed the importance of sealing three points and claims his side face a "must win" clash against Costa Rica.

Meanwhile, a defeat for Costa Rica will see them stay at the bottom of group table with just a point and could share the spot with Paraguay, if Colombia beat them in the second match scheduled on Tuesday.
