Canada and Costa Rica duke it out for control of the 2017 Gold Cup’s Group A on Tuesday in Houston.

Costa Rica could only find a goal against Honduras, and Marco Urena’s 39th minute marker was solid but didn’t inspire further confidence of Los Ticos status as potential tournament winners.

The 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff will be followed up by Honduras’ match against French Guiana.
