Hi. As Donald is travelling back from being away support last night, I’m helping out in a pinch.
Panama vs. USA, 2018 World Cup qualifiers (Stars and Stripes FC): It wasn’t a pretty match, and Bruce Arena had to make due with a patchwork backline, and I don’t think Jurgen Klinsmann would have walked away with 4 points in the last two games, so it wasn’t a bad result.
Mexico vs. Trinidad & Tobago 2017: Final score 1-0, El Tri in control of World Cup qualifying (SB Nation): Somewhat nearby, Mexico still doing Mexico things.
Lionel Messi suspended 4 games for insulting official (SB Nation): This was a surprise, and Argentina further got darker when it lost to Bolivia in qualifiers yesterday.
