US national team returns to stadium where it captured two Gold Cup trophies

The USA will step on Soldier Field's grass on Tuesday night knowing they will need at least a draw against their CONCACAF rivals Costa Rica (8 pm ET; FS1/UniMás/UDN) in their quest to qualify out of Group A of the 2016 Copa America Centenario.

The good news for them is that they know that they can get results at the 92-year-old Chicago stadium because they've done it before.

The US national team has played in Soldier Field a total of 13 times. In those 13 games, they have been able to come out with a win on six occasions, with the most famous one coming in 2007 when they defeated Mexico in the Gold Cup final thanks to a world-class goal from Benny Feilhaber.

They also eliminated Canada in the semifinals of that same tournament at Soldier Field and six years later they would lift the Gold Cup trophy again in Chicago, after beating Panama.

The USMNT's last loss in Chicago came in 2007, two and a half months after they defeated Mexico for the Gold Cup title, when Brazil beat them 4-2 in a friendly. It is the USA's only loss in Chicago in their last six games.
