Canada is in serious trouble.

There is no other way to put it after the Canadian national team dropped a 2-1 result against Honduras in Montreal on Saturday night. The loss left Canada with just one point from two home qualifiers in what is easily the toughest group in CONCACAF. Oh, and the Canadians must now travel to Mexico City Chiapas to face Mexico on Wednesday.

Ouch.

While the U.S. national team did enough to take three points from Cuba, Mexico continued on its path to the Hexagonal with a 3-0 thrashing of Jamaica. The win moved Mexico to six points, five ahead of Jamaica and Canada and three clear of Honduras.
