Fun first half to watch. Both teams missed a couple good chances. Good soccer

Mexico dominating the second half. Looked like Steffen let that ball go thinking it was over the bar.

Well...ugggh


2nd half stunk. We couldn’t make any damn adjustments


Overall, good, not great, tournament. Some positives to be taken moving ahead

The official was very bad. That and the atomic knee drop that Altidore took right before that should have been carded.

That said, I’d we finished our chances, we win.

I understand that, but horse **** officiating should always be called out. It can literally win or lose games for teams.

But seriously we need better options up top than Altidore and Zardes.

Changes to CONCACAF World Cup qualifying


I absolutely hate it .... far too much power given to FIFA rankings and almost impossible for a lower ranked team to qualify


The United States and Mexico are almost certain to go straight to the six-team Hexagonal round of qualifying for Qatar 2022, with CONCACAF announcing new rules for the next World Cup.

The top six-ranked teams in the FIFA rankings after the June 2020 international window will automatically be included in the home-and-away Hexagonal. The top three will qualify for Qatar 2022.

Gold Cup winner Mexico is currently a long way ahead of those outside the top six, meaning it's virtually inconceivable that El Tri won't be in the Hex, while the United States and Costa Rica are both comfortably positioned.

Jamaica, Honduras and El Salvador currently make up the top six, while Panama, Canada, Curacao, Trinidad and Tobago and Haiti are all pushing forward.

The teams that aren't in the Hexagonal will be involved in a separate tournament involving the teams ranked between seventh and 35th. Those 29 teams will be drawn into eight groups, with the winners of those groups advancing to a knockout phase. The country that wins the knockout phase will play against the fourth-placed finisher in the Hexagonal in October 2021 for a spot in the FIFA intercontinental playoff.

FIFA is probably the second most corrupt group in the world. Congress better watch their backs.

Barca paid 120 million euros for Griezmann...so each of the last three years they have bought someone for 100M+
