Well, sooner or later, it had to happen.

ESPN3 announced Wednesday that it will dedicate two channels to stream two separate camera angles of the U.S.-Costa Rica World Cup qualifier Friday.

It will have a tactical cam, which is aerial wide-angle view of the teams formations and positioning.

The other will be an ISO Cam – an isolation camera focused solely on key players. Pulisic, who performs for Borussia Dortmund, and Seattle Sounders striker Clint Dempsey, who is on the verge of breaking the team’s scoring record held by Landon Donovan.

The qualifier kicks off at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J. at 6:55 p.m. Friday on ESPN.

Ian Darke, analyst Taylor Twellman will provide match commentary with sideline reporters Julie Stewart-Binks (covering USA) and Sebastian Salazar (Costa Rica). Host Bob Ley and analysts Kasey Keller and Herculez Gomez will be on site for pre-game, halftime and post-game shows. They will also contribute segments on SportsCenter and ESPN FC throughout the day.
