With a USA win today and a Mexico loss (to El Salvador - I mean, I know it's a road match but Mexico really ought to be able to go in there and at least get a tie) we're inching closer to a World Cup with the United States and without Mexico. Which would really, really piss off the Mexicans. I admit to being pretty schadenfreude-y about this, having not yet forgiven them for their Osama chants and general awful behavior when our team is involved.
Anyway, they're currently squatting at fifth in the standings. Trouble for El Tri. Big trouble? Think they're really in danger of missing out? Their saving grace is they still have four home matches left, where they're damn near unbeatable usually, and they have yet to play Trinidad. All they have to do is get to third place to qualify, and fourth to get to a playoff with a mediocre South American team.
