Columbus expects another big crowd at Mapfre Stadium on Saturday when Eastern Conference leader New York City FC visits, so Crew SC coach Gregg Berhalter wasnt hawking tickets when discussing the match against the star-studded visitors.He was merely pointing out that the teams are among the top five in possession and are unlikely to settle into defensive postures.We both want to play attacking soccer. We want to play entertaining soccer, Berhalter said. That will be an interesting dynamic when you have both teams wanting to do that.Somethings got to give. Its not the classic offense vs. defense matchup. Its two offensive teams going at each other. At the very least its going to be very entertaining for the spectators.NYCFC (10-7-7) features David Villa, second in MLS with 13 goals, and former Chelsea standout Frank Lampard, whose six goals in July won him the leagues player of the month award. He has eight goals in 12 games (nine starts) this season.The Crew (3-8-10) are 0-4-5 in the past nine games and 1-5-8 in 14. Columbus is seven points back of New England and Orlando City for the final playoff spot in the East.Crew forward Ola Kamara has 10 goals in 15 games and his 0.85 goals per 90 minutes are second in MLS to Lampards 0.93.Despite Kamaras exploits and the Crews desire for attacking soccer, little has gone right for the 2015 MLS Cup finalist, including draws in the past five home games.Theyve been really unlucky with injuries, with some of the scenarios in games, but I really enjoy watching them play, New York coach Patrick Vieira said.

Jairo Arrieta scored on a first-half penalty shot as Costa Rica beat Canada 1-0 in an exhibition match Tuesday. The penalty was Costa Ricas only quality opportunity of the half. Canada had the bulk of possession in the game in front of 8,110 fans at Commonwealth Stadium, but couldnt finish its chances. "If we had hit the target on the occasions that we had free headers it could have been 4-1 tonight," said interim head coach Colin Miller. "I dont think theres anything to be negative about at all other than result, which is not what we wanted." Costa Rica was awarded the penalty after midfielder Samuel Piette swiped for a ball in the Canadian 18-yard box but took out Arrieta instead. Arrieta then converted the kick by putting it just past the outstretched hands of Canadian goalkeeper Milan Borjan, who dived to his right to try to stop the penalty. Canada now heads into Julys Gold Cup tournament without a win in five games in 2013. Admittedly, all of the games have come against higher ranked opponents and mostly with players that seldom feature for their club teams, let alone the national team. The best result Canada has been able to muster this year was a scoreless draw against the United States back in January. "Its something to consider," said midfielder Julian de Guzman, who served as captain. "Going into a tournament thats our biggest moment this year and we havent gotten a win for the year yet. So Im sure theres a little big of concern there but at the same time were in the middle of rebuilding and there are a lot of new faces and a lot of inexperienced players." The initial roster of 35 players for the Gold Cup is due on Friday before it will be trimmed down to 23 inn time for July.dddddddddddd That squad is likely be feature more veteran players than were on had Tuesday. Canada nearly responded two minutes after conceding the penalty. Defender Nik Ledgerwood started a scoring chance as he swung in a low cross from the right side. Midfielder Issey Nakajima-Farran was first to the ball but his shot from just inside the 18-yard box was too high. Randy Edwini-Bonsu made a few eye-catching runs in the first half, showing off his blazing speed. In the 26th minute he blazed around the Costa Rican back line and was alone on goal but had a bad-angle shot saved by Costa Rica goalkeeper Patrick Pemberton who had raced off his line. Edwini-Bonsu, an Edmonton native, was relishing the rare opportunity to play at home as Canada was playing their first game in Albertas capital since 2008--well before Edwini-Bonsu was on the national team radar. "Last time we played here was so long ago," said Edwini-Bonsu, who played for German second division side Eintracht Braunschweig this past season. "I thought Edmonton deserved it and thankfully Im from here so it worked out perfect." Canada had a few more opportunities just before halftime, but both a Doneil Henry header on a corner kick and an Andre Hainault header on a Kyle Bekker free kick both missed wide. Canada nearly went down another goal in the second half. Osvaldo Rodriguezs header in the 54th minute looped into the net, but the goal was called back for a foul as Rodriguez shoved Ledgerwood to win the ball. Both sides were reduced to 10 men in the 75th minute when Christopher Meneses and Ledgerwood scuffled near the corner in the Canadian end. Meneses clearly shoved Ledgerwood in the face, which is an automatic red card, but it was not immediately clear what Ledgerwood did to merit the second sending off.
