The sky is no longer falling. The United States put up a 4-0 win over Guatemala in World Cup Qualifying in a clear must-win and the gang looks back on the victory as the dust settles. The result was right, but was the direct style a blast from the past? Speaking of a blast from the past, Canada must now prep for a do-or-die game in San Pedro Sula after Mexico handled business at Azteca, and the US U-23s failed to qualify for the Olympics once again. What does this mean for the future of soccer in the US and Canada?
Now that the international break is over, there's a full slate of fascinating MLS games to preview. Do the Revs or Red Bulls have more riding on Friday’s match on UniMas? What’s led to Philly's early success? What are the guys most looking forward to in the SKC-RSL rivalry matchup? And THE MLS original matchup goes down on Saturday night as D.C. United travels to San Jose nearly 20 years to the day of the league’s inaugural match.
In the mailbag, Tommy Mac might be Ireland’s next soccer legend, and the guys search under the cushions for some fresh American fullback prospects.
