Saborio nets classic Sabo goal in 2-1 win for Costa Rica

Alvaro Saborio and Costa Rica won 2-1 over Paraguay in international friendly action last night, with Saborio scoring the second — and eventual game-winning — goal for the Ticos.

The goal, above, is prototypically Saborio. He makes a great run across the face of the Paraguayan defense to pick up a perfectly weighted ball, and with all the finishing ability we've come to expect from the striker, he slots it between the goalkeeper's legs.

Such calm striking is hard to find, and with any luck, we'll see more of that on Saturday from Saborio.
