Hooligan's Wake Up: USMNT might as well be in the hex

World Cup Qualifying- CONCACAF
St. Vincent and the Grenadines 0-6 United States
(Wood 28', Besler 32', Altidore PK 43', Pulisic 71', 90+2', Kljestan 78')

Honduras 2-1 Canada
(Martinez 45+2', Quioto 51')-(James 35')

Trinidad and Tobago 2-2 Guatemala
(Jones 45', 62')-(Ruiz 36', 86')

Haiti 0-1 Costa Rica
(Azofeifa 72')

Panama 2-0 Jamaica
(Torres 28', Arroyo 90')

El Salvador 1-3 Mexico
(Larin PK 24')-(Moreno 52', Sepulveda 58', Jimenez PK 73')

These results mean the USA is still likely to go to the hex. They would need either a point against Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday night or for their 12 goal lead in goal differential to evaporate between an epic loss to T&T and a massive victory for Guatemala.

NASL
Ottawa Fury 2-2 FC Edmonton
Stewart 2', Tissot 36')-(Fordyce 42', 62')

USL
Seattle Sounders 2 2-1 Vancouver Whitecaps 2
(Parra 67', Jones 90+3')-(Greig 64')
