Jamaica's victory seemed quite in keeping with the flow of the game. Throughout the game both teams had excellent chances that were muffed, but I thought it was a good game. I've always been strangely loyal to the Mexican national team, but good for the underdog playing a good game. I can't imagine they have a chance against the US, but fiik.

It was hard to see either team lose today (Jamaica v USA). The loss
of Andre Blake may have caused the loss. Both teams deserved it, for sure.

How, after killing Panama Friday, could US lose to Trinidad and Tobago, and get eliminated from the World Cup. . . ??????

As Iíve said for yonks, the US plays athletically but not creatively, or even skillfully. I donít see any Lukakus or Ibrahimovichs out there, let alone any Ronaldos or Messis. When I go by practice fields here, as I have forever, all I see are kids dribbling balls around mazes of cones being directed by men who donít have a clue. When we start seeing kids playing in alleys, or any semi-level patch of this Earth, just because they love it then there will be some cause for hope. I saw some fabulous street players on one of the main streets of El Chalten, Argentina with Fitzroy looming over them. They would ricochet the ball off the curb or a carís tyre to make a pass. Hell, in Naples they donít even need a semi-level alley, the steeper the better the challenge!

Yeah, I didn't even watch the first leg on Friday, thinking Italy had it in the bag. Pretty tense match today, with some interesting calls or lack thereof. But you have to hand it to Sweden, their teamwork carried the day.

Definitely a shocker. First time since 1958 that Italy doesn't qualify for the world cup. Great job by Sweden. Not a fun way to retire for Buffon

How about that.

The all new USMNT draws w/ Portugal (okay, their 2nd string), 1 - 1 because our goalie lets an easy shot go through his legs. . .
but they were all new players except Yedlin--and they worked hard, pressed hard, and showed spirit. Pulisic didn't play either. . .
