If Brazil finish second in their group then the US may end up playing them anyway  :devil:. All this talk by commentators about avoiding Brazil by winning the group is premature.

With the exception of Haiti and Jamaica, CONCACAF is giving a good account of themselves...Panama almost making the with the exception list. But kudos to CR tonight...they are a very solid team, the first goal from the USA really threw them off, and USA killed them on the counter!

Three out of six CONCACAF teams so far gave a good account of themselves. Not too sure if I would say CONCACAF did well as of right now.

Imagine what it must be like in the OFC competition.

Think of the 2022 conversation regarding reparations as the item tabled for future discussion when initially raised for negotiation during talks in 1834. A lot of intere$t has accrued.

Which one has more pace? The Copa has been more entertaining to me despite the couple blowout games.

In terms of running, the Copa has been faster, but the quality hasn't really been there. Both tournaments feature 2 classes of teams: Those that want to win, and those that don't want to lose. All the teams drop behind the ball and press as it approaches the final 3rd, but the Copa teams seem more willing to go hard into a tackle, so you have to do whatever you are doing quickly. This results in lots of wayward passes and wild shots.

It was, but it's still a travesty they didn't advance from the group.

Personally ...

Overall de Copa cyah touch the Euros. The quality of the Euros is more than a cut above. Iz football within football.

The Copa eh have no nuances. Copa iz flat out kill or die. Euro iz yuh could dead dis way or dat way or ... nah, lehwe kill dem this way. Or, if we have to die, we going out dis way.

Different types of drama.

The playing identity of the Euro teams is clearer.
