Qatar are looking to play two friendlies in June before heading south to play in the Copa America. We are amongst the possible contenders.

Their first game would be June 16th. The Gold Cup begins June 15th.

Just like the 2017 Gold Cup, the groups will be revealed after they've been decided by the powers that be. The reveal will occur on April 10.

If we're in Group A or B, we'll be on the Mexico/Costa Rica side of the draw. If we're in Group C or D, we'll be on the Honduras/US side of the draw.

After not receiving any FIFA points for our 4-2 Gold Cup victory over French Guiana, or for our upcoming CNL qualifying match with them, I really hope we're not "placed" into another group with a non-FIFA member (thinking ahead to when Martinique probably qualify). Same feeling for League A, even though that's an actual draw and can't be helped if it happens. With only 4 matches in the group stage of League A (home/away against the other 2 teams in your group), it would be really frustrating not to get points from 2 of the 4 CNL group stage matches.

Well it's official now.

The press in Panama leaked this info in mid-February:

So when we end up in Group D with the Yanks, @admin can start planning a bus to Cleveland!  ;) 

 

We always knew there wouldn't be a true draw.

So... my Spanish... is... well it isn't.

Is there an executive summary here? 

The sooner I know the better, 'cause if we are for sure 100% in Group D it makes life easier for me for planning things now.

Alberts Men's Wear. That is the reason you go to Cleveland. 

I need a new bad ass red jacket for a new era.

Hey Cleveland would probably be the only place I could make it out to easily. It would be perfect.

Yeah, I'm hoping for that group.

I think we would get a good number out, be a great trip.

I was just about to post that, wondering if the GC groups get influenced by tonight's CNL draw. There's probably a good chance Panama doesn't get placed into Group A with Mexico now.

"Draw"??? ;)

We could get the same teams; just more unlikely.

Ahh i get it. 

I hope we get the US twice then. I pray we do.

If they're smart, the get a Canada US rivalry back online.

But the only way to plan for that would be not having a draw and instead rigging some sort of ohhhhhhhhhh.

On the topic of Cleveland, my kids recently showed me the "Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video".  I think there are a couple of them.

It is well worth a minute of your life.
