CONCACAF Standings

Well things certanly tightened up in the standings. The big rivalry between Mexico and the Yanks played out in Mexico City. Over 100,000 Mexicans poured into Astec stadium to see their hero's play. They did not disappoint their faithful winning 2-1 against their bitter rival to the north. El Tri needed the victory much more that the States and they got the points they desperatly needed. The game was now without it's rivalry dislike for eachother. Charlie Davies went down with cramps and 2 Mexicans attenpted to "help" him off hte ground....that when tempers heated and pushing got involved. In my hockey days I would just drop the gloves and knock someone out....I would probably not be long for soccer. I am amazed at the restraint soccer players have.
USA vs MEx highlights

Honduras clearly is a player now in qualifying. They are tied for the second spot with the yanks with 10 points. aAfter a resounding 4-0 trouncing of Costa Rica. Yes mightly Costa Rica got pasted in Estadio Olimpico in San Pedro Sula. Costa Rica can stop beating there chest now however the Tico's are still in first place. They also have a road vistory over the newly improved T&T. After seeing the armed guards in the Stadium maybe the Tico's were afraid to go on offense.

Trinidad & Tobago finally got a win beating El Salvador in Hasely Crawford Stadium 1:0. T&T is a very long shot to advance so the loss really hurts El Salvador chances. San Jose Earth Quake C Glen scored for T&T.
