Vancouver's Kendall Waston joins Costa Rica ahead of Canada game

Costa Rica have added Vancouver Whitecaps captain Kendall Waston to its Gold Cup squad ahead of Tuesday's game against Canada.

Waston joins up with Los Ticos as an emergency injury replacement for Bryan Oviedo, who suffered a leg injury in training.

Oviedo, who missed Costa Rica's opener against Honduras, has returned to Sunderland, his club in England. He's expected to be sidelined for two to three weeks.

Waston returned to play for the Whitecaps last week after suffering a broken and and strained hip in a friendly in June.
