USA in 4th in the HEX

   The USA gained 4 points of a possible 6 during their last 2 games. The good news is; they beat and tied the two teams they will be fighting, for the 4 automatic qualifying spots. (Honduras and Panama)

        The top 3 team in the HEX qualify for the World Cup directly. The 4th place team goes into a playoff against the Asian Federation's 5th place.  

The USA remaining schedule:

June 8th                  Trinidad & Tobago @ USA        W
June 11th                 USA    @    Mexico                    L  maybe a tie

Sept 1st                Costa Rica @ USA                      W maybe a tie
Sept   5th              USA           @  Honduras               T

The USA has some nice competitive games coming up. They should beat Caribbean nation Trinidad and Tobago, especially with out the influence of the corrupt Jack Warner behind the scenes and his corrupt influence. T&T are big and fast but lack overall talent to run with the Yanks. in the states.

The USA then travels to Mexico where it is near impossible to win or get a favorable call there. However Mexico did beat my Yanks in the USA and the USA could play with payback in mind. They should be playing with confidence and much more desperate than the Aztec's. The Aztec's hopefully will have an unblemished record at this point and will be playing for pride. 
-- The next 2 games are against Central American foes....more on those this summer.

But all us yank fans can breath a sigh of relief after gaining 4 points and watching the usa team play. They have always been a solid defensive team to break down and have tall trees (Brooks, Gonzo,
