Anyone else concerned about this USA vs Guatemala game.  All USA have to do is win.  Why is it so hard.  Making the group unnecessarily complicated.

What makes you think the USA is good? They have very little talent. Most Central American teams are more technical

Come on lets me real. They are better than what they played tonight. Shocking stuff from them. Embarrassing really. I would say they not making the hex but they will... some how or the other. NO way Fox and co. are loosing all that money. Sadly Trinidad has a harder job now. Guatemala has a better goal difference than us I believe. We have to murder SVG come Tuesday. And we have to beat Guatemala at home too and not loose to USA by too much in USA.

I am confident once we play to our potential T&T will beat St Vincent and Guatemala at home..and with those two wins we would have qualified for the hex before playing the USA

Yes this result just opened up the group and it can make our final 2 games very interesting.

USA has no top players. The gap with Mexico has never been so wide since before 1990.

American coaches only develop robots. No creativity, little skills, and even tactically they are poor.

They can make it in Concacaf because outside of Mexico and Costa Rica, the other countries have very poor level of human development and high corruption but if you look at pure talent you will find more talented players in Central America and the Caribbean that you will find in the US system.

We need to take care of our business. We have 7 Guatemala 6 and USA 4. Good riddance to the soccer players but you cannot count them out.

Our only problem is that we have to shore up the defence.......I still think we need to find 2 quality central defenders.... where from me eh know but we now  know that at our best we can run with them. What will hurt us is not playing this summer as we would have gained invaluable experience

That is why I am still upset we did not take advantage of the Copa Centenario opportunity.

I'm also moving towards that school of thought that KJ's time should be limited lawd knows I've gotten enough cuss for defending his time on the field but after watching today's game I really have to ask, what does he bring other than leadership. Something is missing from how he plays and he has played target long enough to know his role. It's almost as if he is afraid to literally think outside the box.

Donovan yes. Only one in the history. Still a player that failed in Europe.

Bradley is a mediocre and certainly technique is not his strenght. Charlie who?

By scoring in this WC campaign, Guatemala's Ruiz - if I am not mistaken - becomes the third player in history to score in each of five World Cup qualifying campaigns. Something like that. Will confirm.

If RRuiz's travel ban continues, he will miss the return leg against us in September. He is banned from traveling outside of Guatemala due to a matter that is in the courts. I believe it's nothing criminal. a civil. . over property.

He was denied a visa to travel to the U.S. For Tuesday's game for this same reason. He's also running for president of the Guatemala federation this year I think.

Not a qualifier but England played some nice ball against Germany. This Germany lookin like garbage though. Emre Can? They not serious.

Nice return by Mario Gomez. I thought he was done and dusted. He woulda had a tidy double if not for a malfunctioning linesman.
