Four numbers to remember
[PANAMA-USA] Jozy Altidore heads into the final Hexagonal match tied for the scoring team in the final round of Concacaf
qualifying. The USA has a chance to tie its Hexagonal record for the fewest goals allowed in the tournament. For four numbers to remember ...
4. Jozy Altidore, who has scored in his last six starts for the USA, four in World Cup qualifying, goes into Tuesday's game tied
with Jerry Bengtson of Honduras for the Hexagonal scoring lead with four goals. Clint Dempsey and Carlo Costly of Honduras are the only players with three goals.
6. If the USA shuts out Panama, it will tie its
Hexagonal record for the fewest goals allowed with only six goals conceded. It set the record in 2005. Costa Rica also goes into the final game with six goals allowed in the 2013 Hexagonal.
U.S. Hex Goals Allowed:
7. If the USA beats Panama, it will finish with seven
points on the road in the Hexagonal for the third straight time. The Hexagonal record for most points on the road is 12 points, set by Costa Rica in 2001 when the Ticos' only loss was a 1-0 decision
to the United States.
U.S. Hex Road Record:
PTS: W-T-L (YEAR)
6: 1-3-1 (1997)
5: 1-2-2 (2001)
7: 2-1-2 (2005)
7: 2-1-2 (2009)
4: 1-1-2 (2013)
14. Dempsey, who
is not with the USA for the final two qualifiers, leads all U.S. players with 14 appearances -- all starts -- in World Cup 2014 qualifying. Geoff Cameron will
also finish with 14 appearances in 16 games if he plays against Panama.
