Relieved more than joyful, U.S. sets sights on Qatar

A 2-0 loss to Costa Rica was disappointing, but the U.S. soccer team was plenty happy afterward because the Americans have qualified for the World Cup anyway. The U.S. last was in the tournament in 2014.

SAN JOSE Costa Rica (AP) — Christian Pulisic and Tyler Adams had relief on their faces as they headed straight from the stadium for a charter jet to Europe and weekend club games.

“This is whatever I’ve always wanted to be, and right now emotions are a bit crazy,” Pulisic said, his voice quavering.

Coach Gregg Berhalter had rushed out for a red-eye to New York and a 12 1/2-hour connecting flight to Friday’s World Cup draw in Doha.
