Concacaf World Cup qualifying headlines This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

Thursday night’s results were not enough to clear up the Concacaf picture much, making for a tense home stretch for those still involved in the octagonal’s top 4.

As things stand, nobody has earned safety yet and five teams are vying for the top three spots for automatic World Cup bids, and someone, most likely Costa Rica or Panama, will have to settle for the playoff spot in fourth place.

Octagonal leader Canada only needed a point to clinch its spot on Thursday, but instead took its first loss of the campaign and will be without Mark-Anthony Kaye after a questionable red card suspension while hosting Jamaica on Sunday.

The U.S. men’s national team avoided a loss at the Azteca in its showdown with Mexico, but not without some setbacks. Yellow cards issued to DeAndre Yedlin and Tim Weah earned suspensions that will further limit Gregg Berhalter’s options. The Americans were already playing without Weston McKennie and Brenden Aaronson, but worse news hit as defender Reggie Cannon was ruled out at the last minute due to a positive Covid test.

As for Mexico, a visit to last-place and already eliminated Honduras should be a predictable victory but obviously, nothing is a given at this stage.

In Africa, the third round of qualifiers kick off and offer a mega matchup on Friday afternoon between Senegal and Egypt who saw each other recently in the Cup of Nations final. Senegal prevailed in a penalty shootout in that final, and noww Mohamed Salah and Egypt will have two legs to work with in the effort to earn some revenge along with a ticket to Qatar.
