Costa Rica Grateful For Panama's Huge Boner

The opening game of tonight’s Gold Cup action between Costa Rica and Panama seemed to be on a slow ride toward extra time*, but a Costa Rica free kick into the box led to a 77th minute own goal when the ball glanced of the top of Anibal Godoy’s head.

Panama’s boner held up, and the match ended 1-0. Costa Rica will play the winner of the game between the United States and El Salvador.

*Apparently there is no extra time in the Gold Cup, except for the final. The match would have gone right to penalties had it stayed 0-0. H/t to Douglas for the correction.
