    WC-Group C outcomes

    As it stands:

    Slovenia - 4
    USA - 2
    England - 1
    Algeria - 0

    Remaining games:

    England vs. Algeria
    USA vs. Algeria
    England vs. Slovenia


    USA absolutley has to beat Algeria. So, assuming they win:
    If England wins out, US moves on along with England
    If England ties Slovenia and either ties Algeria, US moves on along with Slovenia
    If England loses to Slovenia and beats Algeria, US moves on along with Slovenia

    Wrong that ref ought seek protection...the Yanks are comin'


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    US World Cup Scenarios

    I want to preface this by saying that it is very dangerous to make any assumptions in WC games, because these are essentially like all-star games with most teams not having that much time together and the small countries are better than many give them credit for.

    Scenarios
    US can not advance if they lose against Alg.

    US can advance with a tie against Alg. if Eng. ties their remaining two games and scores less goals in the last two games than the US.

    US is guaranteed to advance if they win by 2 or more against Alg.

    If the US wins by 1 against Alg. they do not advance if Eng. beats Alg., Slo. and Eng. tie and both of the following happen - Slo. scores more goals in the final game than the US and either Eng. beats Alg. by more than 1 or scores more goals in the final two games than the US.

    Should be a lot clearer after the England Algeria game. The bottom line is we'll most likely have our fate in our own hands.

    Looks like Carragher will miss the Slovenia match for England. That could hurt.

    Great chance for the US if England and Algeria can end up in a tie. Then its pretty much win and you're in for the US.

    That could end up being our biggest problem.

    Huge. Now USA is in if they win. They have 2 more goals scored than England.

    Re: US World Cup Scenarios

    Massive Result for Algeria and the USA for that matter. 1st Clean Sheet ever for Algeria in a World Cup in 8 matches.


    Win and we are thru to the next round. With an England win over Slovenia we can/should win the group.

    Re: WC-Group C outcomes

    England has to be one of the most disappointing squads so far. They were even having some say they were in a select group of favorites and they have played to 2 draws with the USA and Algeria. That does not bode well for them.
