    USA Soccer vs. Trinidad & Tobago (9/9)

    Just picked up the game here in the beginning of the second half , see it's 0-0. Any thoughts on the first half? This is a must win situation with the top 4 CONCACAF teams separated by just 1 point

    Our central midfield was invisible in the first half.

    Re: USA Soccer vs. Trinidad & Tobago (9/9)

    The fourth place team from this group goes into a 2-game playoff with a team from another region for a spot in the WC, right?

    Thats the kind of game the USA has to avoid, the home and home series on two continents are ridiculous.

    Yes, 4th place in our region plays the 5th place team from South America, which at this point could be Argentina.

    Also...Goal!!!!

    Top 3 automatically qualify, 4th place team plays 5th place team from South America in playoff. not sure if its a two-game or straight 1

    edit: JD beat me to it but I was distracted/excited about the goal haha

    It's a two game/cumulative score playoff. I'm not sure if they use the away goal tiebreaker.

    Re: USA Soccer vs. Trinidad & Tobago (9/9)

    back line is clueless most of the time and absent the other... very frustrating. seems like the midfield losses its way.... offensive creativity is fun to watch. Past that, this team, under this coach won't make it out of the WC round robin.

    The 6 points in the last week are the reason they will qualify for the WC. We were also very lucky to avoid yellows tonight.

    Re: USA Soccer vs. Trinidad & Tobago (9/9)

    I think they have a chance to do fairly well in the WC, we will be able to tell a lot by the group we have. We could advance in a tough group or get knocked out in an eazy group, it all depends on which team decides to show up... The one who beat spain or the one who lost to costa rica

    Salvador took down Costa Rica late. All we need in the last two games is 2 points.

    Re: USA Soccer vs. Trinidad & Tobago (9/9)

    The clinching scenarios for USA (if I am doing the math right) with two games to go (just one of the four need to happen):

    1. Beat Hondoras in the next game - on the road
    2. Costa Rica loses their next game - vs T&T
    3. Both teams (USA and CR) tie in their next game.
    4. Tie the last game vs Costa Rica. Even if everything goes wrong in the next round, a tie in the last game will clinch.
