I think they'll be gunning in this match, they'll want to show that the loss was a fluke. I expect all three points from this match.

Half Time

We should easily be up by 2 or more, but we've only managed the one. However, the team does look a lot better than they did against Mexico.

God, that ref was horrendous, every call went Guatemala's way. It was disgusting. Plus, that Donovan goal was good!

Great game. We probably should have won at least 3-0, perhaps 4-0. We really moved the ball around nicely and looks like the high-altitude training over the past couple weeks has paid off. I have not seen us attack like that in a long while.

And Eddie Johnson is absolutely amazing. 8 goals in 8 matches for the United States. He really looks like the real deal and I'm excited to see him this upcoming season.

An expected win by the US but im very surprised Mexico only got a draw vs Panama that could really hurt them later on if the US doesnt lose another game.

How is a draw going to potentially hurt them? You mean in finishing up first in the standings? Who cares!

Both the US and Mexico have an automatic ticket to the WC. Braging rights aside, this competition is nothing but a tune-up prior to the big dance. The real battle is for 3rd with Guatemala, Costa Rica and Panama all going at it tooth and nail to get the coveted third WC slot.
