Sep 5, 17, 10:39 PM #2266Panama up 2-0 late. The USMNT blew it with these last 2 games. They are officially going to be in 4th place now. And Honduras is still in contention to eliminate them totally. This is unbelievable.Advertisement
Sep 6, 17, 07:48 AM #2267When you start Zusi, Gonzales and Beasley, you're not really that good. Add to that a couple of timid midfielders and a hostile environment and the US was lucky to get out of there with 1 point.

Heck, there has to be some dude playing in USL or NASL more suited to outside back than an aging Graham Zusi and DeMarcus Beasley.
I'm glad for what both of them have done for American soccer, but it's time to go enjoy the stud farm now, fellas.

Panama is going to go all out against us. Remember in 2013 where we had already qualified and traveled to Panama, and all they had to do was win and they'd get the playoff spot. Panama was up 2-1 going into stoppage time, but we scored two goals in stoppage time to deny them a shot at the WC and instead gave the playoff to... Mexico.

They will definitely be out for revenge.
Sep 12, 17, 10:47 PM #2275I'm sure 137-year old Blas Perez will manage to score a goal or two.
Oct 1, 17, 07:37 AM #2276Roster is out.
Fabian Johnson out. Benny Feilhaber in.
I'd say Orozco and Agudelo are both pretty surprising.
Yedlin and Cameron are both coming off injury.
We'll see what Arena comes up with but Friday is nail-bitin' time.

Costa Rica 16
What are the scenarios? Obviously, win and you're in but what happens with a draw or a loss? Still so much on the line.
Will Mexico give us an assist like we gave them 4 years ago?
Mexico vs. Honduras
Panama vs. Costa Rica
USA vs. T&T

So that amazing differential turns our two point advantage in the standings into effectively just shy of three. As long as the USA gets a draw, then Panama would still have to beat Costa Rica by 8 goals to pass us.
That said, the nightmare scenario is still on the table. If the USA loses and both Panama and Honduras win, then USA is fifth in the group and we're out completely. If USA lose and either of those two win but not both, then we're fourth and go to the playoff against a team from the Asian federation in November.

T&T is really bad, aren't they?

- No time to enjoy #4, It's on the path to #5...
Seems like a lot of unnecessary fretting IMO.
