But the big difference came two days later. Costa Rica shocked news by delivering a 2-0 defeat of Nicaragua. Because the Copa’s rankings are based upon both wins and goals, Costa Rica jumped to the top of Group A with their Nicaraguan two goal victory. On Wednesday, Guatemala needed a win to stay alive.
