WASHINGTON – Costa Rica, on track to qualify for the Women's World Cup for the first time, wrapped up group play Tuesday with a 6-1 win over Martinique in the CONCACAF championship.
Fabiola Sanchez, Carolina Venegas and Wendy Acosta scored in the first half, and Raquel Rodriguez Cedeno tallied twice in the second half. Venegas capped the Costa Rica scoring with a spectacular 90th-minute bicycle kick on a rainy evening at RFK Stadium.
Costa Rica had already clinched first place in Group B with wins over Mexico and Jamaica. Las Ticas will face Group A runner-up Trinidad and Tobago on Friday in the semifinals at the Philadelphia Union's stadium in Chester, Pennsylvania.
