LOS ANGELES:- Costa Rica slowed the USA's march toward the 2014 World Cup with a 3-1 win Friday, while Mexico were on even shakier ground after a 2-1 loss to Honduras. Costa Rica moved to the top of the six-nation final qualifying group in North and Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF) with the victory in San Jose that ended the USA's 12-match winning streak. The Ticos now head the group on 14 points, one more than Jurgen Klinsmann's United States. Mexico, long the powerhouse of the region, are in worse straits heading into another crucial round of matches Tuesday. –AFP
