Sorry about that - hopefully, this link works.

A member of Paris St-Germain has been arrested in connection of an attack on a teammate - both midfielders.

As a metal bar was the weapon, people have been drawing comparisons to "the Whack".

USA plays in Jamaica at 5PM EST tomorrow on Spanish language TV or Paramount+ in the USA. Canada plays Mexico at home at 830PM EST on Spanish language TV only. I can not find an English language broadcast in the USA.

NJL (I hope that US Soccer gets a lot of loot from selling broadcast rights to pay TV....:rolleyes:..)

The weather on Canada's side today in Edmonton. You haven't played football until you've played outside in Edmonton in November.

Not 2 points - we're only 5 points up on 4th place Panama at the moment with 4 games (12 points) on the table. If we finish 4th we have to play a continental qualifier against the Oceania (OFC) Champion - likely to be New Zealand - in June. If Canada wins it's next game then we'll guarantee ourselves a top 4 finish.

OK, Buzz, the fun will start on July 4 in Mexico when 8 teams will meet to crown a CONCACAF W Champion and play for the 4 CONCACAF teams assured spots in the WWC 2023 in Australia/New Zealand. who will be the 8 teams? Who will be the Big 4? Who will the the not-so-big 2 that will play in the FIFA 10 team playoff to the slot available in that competition? Who will win the Final game in the CONCACAF playoff to be the Champion and get that trophy plus get one of the 2 allocated slots to the 2024 Olympics?

It is time for things to get real for the ladies. It is going to be interesting.

Canada lost to Costa Rica 1-0 and will play Jamaica on Sunday. But we are still on top of the group. Italy will miss another World Cup after losing to North Macedonia. :wideeyes:

Canada learns the truth about away games in Costa Rica: you do not win there.

The USA has never won there either and the USA's last game is away in Costa Rica. Thus, the USA must defeat Panama Sunday to stand any chance of going to the World Cup. The USAs 0-0 draw away against Mexico put them on the right track, but a loss to Panama could well be fatal because, if memory serves, they have never left Costa Rica with a point, let alone 3. A win Sunday and a miracle point at CR and they are in.

Canada should win the next 2 games. I do not see any way that they do not go to the World Cup.

Canada is in and should finish 1st in the Octagonal. Well done.

Now the USA, Mexico and Costa Rica will decide 2nd, 3rd and 4th on Wednesday. I am calling Mexico 2nd, the USA 3rd - on goal differential - and Costa Rica 4th. All the other teams have been eliminated.

NJL (Maybe)

It worked as I expected. The USA's scoring differential was more than Costa Rica could overcome and the USA finished 3rd ahead of 4th place Costa Rica - who won 2-0 vs the USA - behind 1st place Canada & 2nd place Mexico. Costa Rica will now play New Zealand to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

World Cup Draw is tomorrow. We will see which groups our teams will play in when things get real.

NJL (let the good times roll!)
