    Go US! Group C is very interesting tonight as well. I cant believe Honduras in jeopardy and needs a result against a tough Canadian team. I wish we could see that match live in the USA tonight too.

    Are those playoff scenarios all correct? The US still qualifies even if Jamaica wins 3-0 and the US loses, for example 1-0? Jamaica would be +3 on goal differential and the US would only be +2, wouldn't it?

    Chris, you missed the "combined margin of no more than three goals" part. If we lost 1-0 and Jamaica won 3-0, they would go through, but if we lost 1-0 and they won 3-1 , we would go through. On the other hand, if we lost 1-0 and they won 4-2 (a similar margin, but them scoring more than 3 goals), they would go through. That's my reading of the scenarios, anyway. I'll be pretty pissed if it comes down to any of these scenarios, though.
