USMNT Road to Brazil: Episode 8 (Preparing for Costa Rica)

    Mexico up 2-0. Doesn’t really indicate how much Honduras has dominated the game though. Begtson has been wasteful in front of goal.

    Really I will take a Mexico team that doesn’t need to get points against the USMNT versus a Mexico team that absolutely needs to get points against the USMNT.

      Although I like to fantasize with this kind of logic, nothing would make Mexico happier than to beat US and/or play a role in US not making the world cup–regardless of whether they will be making it or now.

    Nice bit of perspective about the nature of WC qualifiers and the new dynamic in CONCACAF.

    Believe you me… the rabid hysteria seen on this board is N O T H I N G compared to what you will see in Mexico after their first 2 results…. coughing up a second half 2-0 lead to Honduras.

    They have some very dynamic, skilled players, but on the whole a very suspect defense and seem to get rattled with pressure. Good, but far from an invincible superpower.
