On July 25th they'll draw those home and home plus the next round so we'll now which of Panama, Honduras, T&T plus which knockout winners will be in our group. They'll announce it as something like USA, Panama, Canada/Curacao winner, & Guatlemala/Nicaragua winner.

The "seeded" teams should be Haiti, Jamaica, Canada, El Salvador, Guatemala, & either Antigua or St Vincent (they are close, Antigua had a win and loss, SV had two draws). Id think if Nicaragua avoids Jamaica and Canada they'll probably pull off an upset. They dominated the first two rounds, won all 4 games +11 GD

Actually I just read somewhere and had to look in to it. Did anyone notice what Curacao did? Since they are an island owned by Netherlands, or sovereigned by them, most Netherlands players are eligible to play for them. There recent world cup qualifying squad featured 11 players who play in Netherlands, 3 in Romanian league, 1 in 2.bundes, 1 in danish league, and 1 in championship. 15 of the players were 25 or younger. They pretty much went to the guys not good enough for Netherlands and got them to play for them. They may be a surprise upstart. I wouldnt want to see them in the next round and will be curious to see how they do.

@msantoine- not only that, their manager is Patrick kluivert.

Also the last seeded team is st Vincent- they use the august 2014 fifa rankings.

I wonder what their club managers think of that? I can't imagine Bruce Arena being happy with AJ Delagarza taking long trips to Asia during the season to represent. . . Guam.

Are you sure about that? I know they used August 2014 for the first two rounds but for instance CAF & UEFA are definitely using June 2015 rankings. Id assume CONCACAF would too.
