CONCACAF WCQs - Last Call!

USA - Panama
Trinidad and Tobago - Mexico
Guatemala - Costa Rica

The final CONCACAF matches will play out tonight. Trinidad and Tobago are currently in fourth place but will need to get at least one point, but more then likely will need all three, from Mexico at home (edit, for some reason I said "in Mexico" when I first wrote this; sorry). Guatemala has it a bit easier, but will still be tested by a strong Costa Rica side. If Guatemala win and T&T does not, then they get to go on to the playoff. Any other way and it will be Trinidad and Tobago making the long trip to Bahrain.

The US will have a great chance to get back to their winning ways with a home game against Panama. Bruce Arena's club will be almost 100% MLS players. This is their chance to impress the boss and gain confidence. Tim Howard will be back between the posts, but he probably will not be tested as much as he was on Saturday.
