After watching this game, I want no part of the Hex, bring on the minnows and the chance to play the #4 Hex team for the half spot playoff. We are not ready for the big boys.

Yes we are.  We have 80% possession against a team just parking the bus.  We’ve buried this team 2x in the past 4 months.

And this proves to you we can beat any of the top 3 teams?

Exactly.  This is literally 6/11 of our best players out there.  The score doesn’t shot it but this is complete domination.

 

Edit- were also playing 10 men and keeping 80% possession.  Think about that.

Complete domination that can be neutered by one fast counter attack is not that comforting.

Thought cuba relaxed those rules and let players play abroad, but i guess its on a case by case basis. 

It’s not Cuba. It’s US politics. Cubans are entitled to asylum in the US and therefore can stay permanently if they can get there (the fact they are surrounded by an ocean makes that difficult). If the same was applied to the other Concacaf nations like Honduras, El Salvador, Jamaica, and even Mexico, you would find players defecting from them every time they came to the US (or Canada) as well.  But Trump wants to build a wall to keep those people out.

Not worried about the performance today. Disappointing yes, of course we want to beat everyone 6/7 nil every game. We could suffer for it through goal difference if we split results home and away vs the States though. On the upside Cuba are a different side today hopefully they take this performance to heart and learn more as the states will be a similar game for them. 

Remember arguably we always play with 10 with Doneil on the pitch 😛 

We played well against Mexico. Sometimes playing the smaller nations are much harder. Look at the FA Cup or even in the Premier League lots of mid to lower table teams play well against the top 6 and spoon it when they play the worst teams in the league. Believe me, I am a Newcastle fan.

No way the U.S. don’t get 6 pts and a plus 7 goals against Cuba. Nothing less than 4 pts for Canada will be enough to get to semis. 

Exactly this, we need a win and a draw now.

Not sure why we wouldn't sub Cordova on.

I think we were forced into subbing a CB on when Doneil went off and Juan was probably the odd man out

adekugbe very weak..showed why hes not and shouldnt be the #1 left back

I didn't think he did bad. I prefer a natural LB. Davies was awesome but those dangerous giveaways in front of Borjan could have cost us big time.

That's why I prefer Adekugbe there.
