1 comment about "Hexagonal: USA well positioned to move into top three".
  1. Miguel Aviles, June 8, 2017 at 1:16 p.m.

    Yes but if next week the US loses to Mexico and Panama win at home against Honduras then Panama will be back in 3rd. Mexico & Costa Rica are the top 2 currently and have advantage of playing 4 of remaining 6 matches at home. Odds are they finish 1-2 in group while Honduras and T&T are in deep trouble, especially if both lose tonight. Good chance fight for final automatic spot and the 4th place and playoff is between USA and Panama.
