USA players commemorate Costa Rica win with signed shovel

By now, you’ve all watched and read about the ridiculous snowstorm during USA’s 1-0 World Cup qualifying victory over Costa Rica on Friday night. To stamp their historic victory in soccer folklore, U.S. soccer posted a signed shovel by USA players on its Instagram account to commemorate their victory at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

The picture of the signed shovel was accompanied with the following message from U.S. soccer:

The entire #USMNT signed this shovel after the game tonight!”

Much to Costa Rica’s chagrin, the Central American team plans to file an official protest with FIFA following their loss to the United States under the snowstorm, which they labeled as an “embarrassment.”

On the bright side, the game was entertaining to watch.
