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.

If Costa Rica hold on for these final 10 minutes it I've end up being the perfect run of results this round for NZ. No upsets for the top 3 creating a further gulf between them and 4th place. As well as Costa Rica inching closer to that 4th place and perhaps sniping it off Panama down the line.

Yeah looking like it’ll be down to Costa Rica or Panama now for that fourth spot. Mexico getting themselves out of a very tight squeeze in Jamaica def good for the AWS! 
Still a ways to go I guess.

Yipe perfect run of results, with one eye on June. Big 3 - Canada, USA & Mexico all won. Mexicans yes left it late in Kingston, against 10 men. Costa Rica beating Panama in San Jose.

Mexico (3rd) 3 points ahead of Panama in 4th. And both Costa Rica (5th) and Panamanians need to play at the imposing Azteca in the next week.

Talking to a local football nut Mexican. He suggested (like Canadian Juneof86 in another thread) that Costa Rica would be a good opponent for the AWs in June. They are still hanging on to their aging golden generation from Brazil 2014. 36 yr old Bryan Ruiz with the winner against Panama. But watching that game, either team would still be very tough for the AWs. Panama had some very tall athletic timber at the back, and unlucky with a header crashing back off the cross bar in 89th min.
