4-0 Canada.

The game was somewhat meaningless anyway since they were already qualified.

BTW, Dwayne De Rasario just scored his 19th goal with Team Canada, tying Dale Mitchell as the top all-time goal scorers.

Honduras and Panama will be tough to beat for Canada.

Cuba shouldn't be a problem though.

Group C
Canada
Cuba
Honduras
Panama

Who do you guys will progress to the hexagon?
US, Mexico, Honduras, Panama, Costa Rica and Guatemala for me.

Then US, Mexico, Panama and Guatemala for the WC and playoff spots.

Group A is pretty easy to pick as the US and Jamaica should take it. Donovan Ricketts is amongst the best keepers in the region and it's going to be tough for the rest of the group to get past him.

Group B should be Mexico and Costa Rica, but won't be surprised if El Salvador pulls an upset over Costa Rica.

Group C should have Honduras go through, but Cuba and Canada is a toss-up. Throw in Panama as well and its a group of death for the region.

Group A: Really gonna be interesting to see if GUA and JAM can tease the US, and also to see who will grab that 2nd spot.
US
Guatemala/Jamaica
Guatemala/Jamaica
Antigua and Barbuda

Group B: I think Costa Rica are getting stronger so they should see of El Salvador. But still could be close.
Mexico
Costa Rica/El Salvador

El Salvador/Costa Rica
Guyana

Group C: Panama beat US and Canada in the Gold Cup, Honduras are decent. Have no idea how good Cuba are though, only know they got spanked at the Gold Cup.
Panama
Honduras

Canada
Cuba

AMERICAN SAMOA WINS!!!!




Okay, American Samoa, one of the bottom feeders of FIFA ranking for years and still holds the record for the biggest loss ever, 0-31 against Australia, just won the first FIFA-sanctioned game in 13 FUCKING YEARS!! They beat Tonga 2-1. Well, Tonga isn't that good either, but still for a team that didn't win a game for that long even against teams at almost the same level, it must be monumental for them.
