US world cup chances


So we have to win tonight to get in the WC?
Is this correct?

If true, that sucks. When was the last time we weren't in the world cup?

Do you think not being in the WC next year will further set back the development of the sport in this country, because a lot less people will be watching?

We do not have to win tonight to get to the WC. That is ridiculous.

Not correct. We are currently in the qualifying round. If we finish in the top 3 of this group we're in. If we come in 4th, we play New Zealand to get in. With that being said our chances of making the World Cup are good.

re: US world cup chances


To get through the Hex you have to be top 3 of 6 to move on. The 4th place team still has a chance (plays playoff). There are 10 hex games(home/away w each team). Right now it looks like this:

STANDINGS

Team......... W.. D.. L. GD. Pts
Honduras.... 1.. 1.. 0.. 1.... 4
U.S.............. 1.. 0.. 1.. 0.... 3
Jamaica..... 0.. 2.. 0.. 0.... 2
Mexico........ 0.. 2.. 0.. 0.... 2
Panama...... 0.. 2.. 0.. 0.... 2
Costa Rica.. 0.. 1.. 1. -1... 1

re: US world cup chances


So the Costa Rica game was our first? Looks like we are in good shape then.
Mexico has lost twice ready? Who did they lose to ?

We lost to Honduras in our first match. Mexico hasn't lost - they've drawn twice. They have two points.

(Victory = 3 points, draw = 1 point)

D is for draw. USA has played two games.

W is win
D is draw
L is loss

USA lost to Honduras and then beat Costa Rica

Mexico drew Honduras and Jamaca

OK so a loss to mexico will put us in the middle of the pack and a little desperate.
We have never won in Mexico right? But we have drawn, correct?

Should be fun match to watch.

We had our first win there ever just a few months ago. A draw tonight would be a success IMO. We would be ahead of Mexico and would have already played them on the road.

This is match three of ten, so we'll still be fine if we don't get a point tonight.

A loss tonight doesn't leave us desperate. We are supposed to lose this game. Anything more is lagniappe.

Time to deploy the Chelsea 9 back formation. Jozy up top and Guzan in goal.
