USMNT player ratings: Pulisic dangerous, Steffen struggles as World Cup ticket punched in Costa Rica

The US men's national team lost 2-0 in their final match of Concacaf World Cup qualifying on Wednesday evening, staving off the worst-case scenario 

That ensured they've qualified for the 2022 World Cup and will head to Qatar in November, returning after Russia 2018's absence.

Perhaps a touch slow on Costa Rica's first goal, the Manchester City 'keeper was clearly at fault on the second,

The Atlanta United defender was unlucky to score on a couple occasions, testing Keylor Navas with a powerful volley in the first half and a smart header in the second.

Robinson perhaps could have done more on Costa Rica's second goal, but overall provided a solid showing.

After a fairly anonymous first half, the Chelsea winger looked much improved in the second, especially after the introduction of Gio Reyna. 

 Pulisic had a couple good moments of quick interchange around the box, but struggled to find space in Costa Rica's low block.
