A prettier picture than last evening. Up next: Los Catrachos
US: Hey how the rest of you guys doing down there?

Costa Rica is pretty much screwed unless they can earn a point at DC. Most likely they end up in the playoff. Very nervous about losing this lead when we have to travel to Honduras. Mexico looks to have the inside track to the top spot which is only made worse by their suddenly obnoxious fans.

Honduras will be yet another litmus test for the US. Do they play better with command of the division and a road win under the belt? I don’t know.
I’d like to get that win so we can see a more experimental/aggressive line-up at RFK with nothing on the line….also so we can get Howard a rest and Guzan some reps. I don’t even want to think of the consequences if Big T goes down.

Just an FYI:
Honduras will be down two starters, Amado Guevara and Danilo Turcios, due to yellow card accumulation. Didn’t see Turcious’ but Guevara was just stupid. It came in second half stoppage time and you could see from the expression on his face when the ref reached for his pocket that he knew he f’d up and would be out for the next game.

lol what do u mean by SUDDENLY obnoxious? I think we have to win beat Honduras because Mexico will rub it in our face if they get first in qualifying. Not only did they have a horrible start, but there’s always constant fighting over which team is better (whether you know it or not)

Well Kevin what I have noticed is their poor behavior in the Gold Cup ( no matter who they were playing) and their recent success in qualifying. They are becoming much more bold in their outlandishness this summer. I went to the friendly last February in Houston and the Mexican fans were great. By the time they came back for their Gold Cup match against Panama they nearly started a riot and threw stuff at medical people trying to get to an injured Panamanian late in the match. It was the difference between night and day.
