    Canada - Mexico just starting in Edmonton. 17 degrees, 10 mph wind, snow cleared from the turf. I bet it’s like playing on concrete.

    And how many picked Mexico to get 0 points this window?

    In some ways, yesterday’s results were not great for the US. The presumptive third and fourth best sides (Canada and Panama) each gained 2 points on the US. So we now stand just 1 point above 4th.

    That being said, our last 6 matches are a bit easier than Panama’s. Mainly because we get Panama at home. But our qualifying date may ultimately come down to that match, which is a scary proposition.

    And Canada, who now has an easier schedule than us and gets to host us, is in better position than us with a 1 point lead as well. As fun as it is to see Mexico get the goose egg, that result was less favorable for us.

    I meant to say this over the weekend but Panama coming back to beat Honduras on Friday was unfortunate. If Panama had lost or worst case tied, I would be feeling more comfortable now.

    Yeah, them scoring 3 goals incredibly late really changed the dynamic. Even a draw there would have been a plus.

    Coming out of this round just 1 point clear of 4th feels decent considering where the week started... but given the results as of our match Friday it feels a bit unfortunate. After beating Mexico, I'd have liked to see more separation between us and the playoff right now.

    Two comments:

    1. Who the heck allowed the Canadians to schedule a night game at -9 degrees Celsius?

    2. Mexico's comeback was very intense, and El Tri came within a few inches of a tying goal on more than one occasion.

    FIFA changed the format for the intercontinental playoff. The 4th place team from CONCACAF, the 5th place teams from Asia and South America, and the top team from Oceania will now play a single game at a neutral site, not a home and home. The 2 winners will be the final 2 qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup. As in the past, the matchups will be determined by random draw. Also unchanged is the desire of the other 3 confederations to avoid the CONMEBOL representative in the playoff.

    Im sorry CDu.

    On the bright side, Portugal is a lot more pissed off than Italy.

    It is about the worst-case scenario. Will have to win an away match against either Portugal or Turkey along with beating North Macedonia.

    All because Jorginho missed that penalty.

    Stupid Azzurri, and stupid draw luck!

    Speaking of draw luck, the intercontinental playoff draw was this morning and the 4th place CONCACAF team will play…[drum roll]…Oceania! You’d still rather finish in the top 3 but facing a sub-100 ranked team from Oceania beats the alternatives.

    Gotta love the idea of Scotland vs. Wales with a World Cup spot on the line.
