Group 1 Primer

Since we've been out of action for a spell, figured we would give you a refresher on the USA's group in the semifinal round of qualifying. The U.S. sits in sole possession of first place with nine points from three matches, snagging away victories in their first two matches against Guatemala and Cuba. Tied on four points, Guatemala is ahead of Trinidad & Tobago based on superior goal differential. The Chapines picked up an important road point in Port-of-Spain on MatchDay 2, then trounced Cuba with a 4-1 win in Guatemala City. The swing match could be Oct. 11 at back in Guatemala City, where T&T will be looking to get back the points lost in the home leg. Cuba has yet to earn a point in the group, but is nowhere near mathematically eliminated from advancing. The two best teams will move on to the final round hexagonal, which kicks off in February of 2009.

Cuba will be mathematically eliminated if they lose against the US and either Guatemala or Trinidad win their contest.

That's pretty sweet. :) If you ask me, we're in a pretty dang good position.
