I'm going to try to stop feeling optimistic right now.

Do we have a US player who's reached across generations. Michael BRadley is an exmpale, but his dad wasn't a legendary national. Like the Blinds or the Schmeical of the world?

I know the mention of the name will set someone off but here goes: Ian Harkes could end up in that category

Honduras beat Cuba 7-1 in the opening match. USA plays Honduras on Wednesday. US is in really good shape.

US win vs Honduras - As long as they dont let Cuba make up a massive GD US would qualify and be 1st with win/draw.

US tie vs Honduras - Would have to win/draw vs Cuba to qualify but would only win group with a +7 GD win.

US lose vs Honduras - Would have to win/draw vs Cuba to qualify as long as they dont lose to Honduras by 6 goals tomorrow.

Pretty much as long as USA draws Cuba they qualify for World Cup. Need to beat Honduras for a shot at tourney title. Honduras may play open as they know they are all but assured of qualifying for World Cup.

Wow fifa should investigate honduras or the coaching I had never seen anything like that in my life. Lol the assistant from Honduras said stop the game and give fans a refund. I mean the team absolutely quit they know their qualified to the WC but doesn't mean you completely stop playing no matter what level. Either way USA is just a much better team I think were gonna win the tournament maybe a rematch vs Mexico again.

Since we've basically locked up advancement to the final, I hope the coach rests the Key players against Cuba in order to keep them healthy and fresh for the final.

I felt bad for the TV commentators, and I don't even speak Spanish.

I hope he never gets this coached out of him.

It's funny that with this exposure at 17, and possibly more as professional, the attraction notoriety will probably make it less likely that a coach would even dare to.

i wouldn't doubt we see this same thing in the 3 team groups of the 2026 World Cup- the structure of 3 team groups allows for this.

Yup. It's impossible to have a fair system with 3 team groups unless only the group winner advances ( then you have to try both games no matter what). If two of three advance it's make sure you beat crappy team (there will be plenty of crappy teams in World Cup) and use other game as rest/avoid cards. It's impossible to make it fair if The two teams know the outcome needed to advance.
