The thing I have to get used to most as an American is the fact that the level of football over here is...lacking to say the least.
Canada, who has been impressive this world cup qualifying campaign, sealed the deal just now with a 4-0 win over an absolutely horrific Jamaican side.
A Jamaican team which has only won 1 time in the final round of world cup qualifying....against an equally awful USA team.
Canada will be joined by 2 other North American sides in the world cup yet to be decided. There is also a playoff spot for whoever finishes 4th place
USA is in 2nd place with 22 points after 12 matches played(They can seal the deal with a win vs Panama in their match in 30 minutes)
Mexico is in 3rd place with 22 points after 12 matches played(They play Honduras in 30 minutes).
Costa Rica is in 4th place on 22 points currently while leading in their match against El Salvador right now.
Panama is on the outside looking in with 18 points before their match against US tonight.....they HAVE to win tonight and next week in their last game vs a canada side who will most likely just be playing back up players.
and Honduras shockingly are all already eliminated.
How the Jamaican side I saw just get crushed by Canada isnt the bottom place team in the region I'll never know. Honduras, which used to have an ok team from what I remember, not having a single win heading into the last 2 games is horrific. Mexico is going to put at least 5 goals past them tonight.
Mexico crushes whats left of Honduras tonight and QUALIFIES For the world cup in 2nd place of the region.
US beats Panama at home tonight in a tight match to QUALIFY in the 3rd spot. Loses to Costa rica Next week in a match that means nothing for America.
Costa Rica holds on tonight to solidify 4th place. Beats USA on wednesday in a useless match to go to the intercontinental playoff against New Zealand. Costa rica whoops on New Zæland and QUALIFIES .
Panama crashes out. Two draws that should have been a win honestly sealed the deal. Even if they beat USA tonight again, which is possible because USA is kind of a joke if we are being honest, I dont see them chasing down a costa rica team who hasnt lost since september.
