years of poor decision making politically leads to this

I think it's hilarious and reinforces just how wonderful a game football is

Not strictly WCQ, but I just realized CONCACAF are doing their version of the Nations League which is amazing for those of us who root for the eternal underdogs.

A lot of amazing highlights on theirwebsite

Including Monserrat's shock win vs Belize, courtesy of an amazing curled shot!

So the Intercontinental Playoff draw for June 2022 is yet to be made. But drawing CONCACAF shapes at this stage as best outcome for OFC winners (hopefully AWs).

8 teams in final stage CONCACAF WC qualifying. After 3 of 14 games, Panama are in the 4th (playoff) spot. So fitting for AWs to play Curaçao this weekend, who only missed out on making final stage CONCACAF qualifying, losing 2-1 over 2 legs in a playoff series to Panama. 

Mexico top (7 pts), then on GD Canada, USA & Panama (all on 5 pts). Costa Rica (5th) on 2 pts probably loom as the other major contender to watch.

Final results.

Jamaica 1 - 1 United States
Costa Rica 2 - 1  Honduras
Panama 2 - 1 El Salvador
Canada  2 - 1  Mexico

8 of 14 rounds played, and now a clear top 4, 4th being playoff spot.
Canada (1st, 16 pts), USA (2nd, 15 pts), Mexico (3rd, 14 pts) & Panama (4th, 14 pts).

Panamanians with a 5 point gap on Costa Rica in 5th (9 pts). Mexico have 4 of their last 6 games at home. Lets home OFC draw CONCACAF, and it's Panama in the playoff spot. I think of all the options out there, seems the kindest outcome.


There certainly is a culture in the Americas, of using home advantage to the maxzimum.

The Canadians took their game against Mexico to chilly Edmonton. A bone freezing -10 Celsius. Ref in long pants, Canuck goalie in a hoodie. The pitch had obviously been cleared of snow. Mex scored at 89 mins, to make the last 5 very exciting. Couple of goaline scrambles late in the Canada goal, incl about half the ball going over at 1one point. Some afters at the final whistle.

So whilst it's great the AWs are playing games (in front of no fans), they are a million miles off replicating the type of matches, potential Intercontinental Playoff opponents are having elsewhere.
