Awesome... by HEX rankings, you mean FIFA rankings as that was the big change this Summer that fcuked us over a bit... to make the HEX we need to be top 6 FIFA rankings NOT region rankingThe games against the US are going to be huge. We need a win and a tie at least I am thinking for any hope of making it to the hex. The yanks will already be in and will hopefully not be interested.
On a side note Panama lost to Bermuda which pushed them below is in the Hex rankings.
Albeit I am not a mathematician and do not profess to be one, but based on my calculations using the formula put out by FIFA, assuming we can win tonight, we only stand to gain 15 points on Panama which still leaves us behind them in the FIFA rankings, though only by 4 points. I could be totally incorrect though as the FIFA formula is far from straight forward so I could have easily made a calculation error. Though another way I figured it we would only be gaining 9 points on them, instead of 15, which doesn't help. We will find out for certain when the FIFA Rankings come out on Sept. 19.Awesome... by HEX rankings, you mean FIFA rankings as that was the big change this Summer that fcuked us over a bit... to make the HEX we need to be top 6 FIFA rankings NOT region ranking
5 Changes for Canada with Hoilett back to England for family reasons (Teibert and Crepeau also back to the Whitecaps due to "knocks" but they didn't see the field in the first game anyway).Three players who featured in Cuba's 6-0 loss to Canada in Concacaf Nations League play at BMO Field on Saturday have reportedly departed the team to defect. El Nuevo Herald reported on Sunday defender Alejandro Portal, who played 90 minutes in the loss, midfielder Andy Baquero (pictured above), whowww.mlssoccer.com
should make things even easier eh?
Solid update. Ya that coefficient would change things and make Panama's loss much more important. It would be huge if DR can hang on to win to bring El Salvador down further. Curacao and Haiti right behind us and playing each other doesn't leave much breathing room, especially with the US games looming.El Salvador losing currently to DR if that holds they drop another bunch of points (-17 I think). Hopefully the DR holds on....
Yes, he was the backup keeper. He died in his sleep at the team hotel the day before the last match. Apparently a heart attack... which is a bit strange because I think he was in his early 30s.Curacao keeper died the other day I think I read somewhere
Idiot yes, but my goodness what is the referee doing when it comes to game management? Sending off a player with a second yellow for waiving his arms in disagreement with your call? If it is a repeat offense and you have warned him, ok. But out of the blue in a tepid game where the Canadians have being getting hacked all night? Come on. I'm going to give the referee the benefit of the doubt and say he forgot Henry was on a yellow when he took the second one out. Still poor game management, but...Doneil with a 2nd yellow for dissent.. misses the USA match next month. Idiot.
