 USA won't have any mercy to Cuba. Goal difference will matter . 

Am I the only one here who thinks that 2 or 3 points against the USA is a really difficult task?

Difficult but doable. I think 3 would be easier than 2. doubt we're able to get a result in the US, but can certainly get a result at home.

Soooo I might have to miss most of the game tomorrow. It looks like OneSoccer did upload the replay for the last game, anyone know how long it takes for them to upload? I’d rather miss the game completely and avoid spoilers for a bit than to watch only part of it live.

Looks like 3 more Cubans defected post-game in Toronto. How that will affect their squad in the Caymans..I'm not sure.

If they are using the same guys, that's a 16-man squad for them.

Thanks, I was wondering if this happened.

We should bet on an over/under for defections after the Cuba/US match

Onesoccer is re-showing the game at 9:45pm est tomorrow.  That’s when I’m watching it.

Jesus frak.  When is Cuba just going to let their athletes go abroad and get better to benefit their national teams?  It's literally just them and North Korea that appear to follow this policy.

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

Turns out I'll probably be home to watch the game after all but it's good that it's being replayed so soon after.

Is that still the case now that they picked up the Mexico Argentina friendly?

Some of us need to gear up for the Z squad. I’m washed up at the ripe age of 23 but still have my pace, just sub me out after 20 minutes because I have no cardio anymore.

I have had this dream for years. 

In the stands, wearing my jersey, watching Canada play.  Due to unforseen circumstances, they need another body on the field.  The manager spots me in the stands and motions me forward.  Why yes, I am wearing cleats.  Leap the fence and play the game of my life.

Someday....

Any score predictions?

I am going with 4-0.  The heat will slow us down a bit and we won't want to concde by pressing too hard. 

David with 2, Davies gets one, and either Larin or Akindele gets one off the bench.

There's a movie about the 87 Canada Cup with this exact plot. Or maybe it was a TV show...

I am going to dream big and say 8-0. Cubans have lost 3 players + Neutral venue could give this a "training-exercise" sort of atmosphere. Could diffuse what little fight they have left (at least for this window).

Our target is clear and we have a lot of players looking to prove themselves. We'll put them to the sword, I am hoping.

Wishing for someone else to step up with a brace - someone like Millar or Akindele.

Hoping for a Larin goal - I think it would be huge for his confidence and us and I expect him to start.  

He has been playing well at his club just needs a goal and no more penalty misses.  

0-5 for me.  Both a few goals and clean sheet with no scares will do me.  Though a real massive goal difference for the US to live up to would be nice.

Sadly, due to Concacaf roster declaration rules, the match is awarded as a 3-0 win to Saint Kitts & Nevis.

Now that we already have 6 goals in the bag, I want a double digit goal differential and another clean sheet. Fill the net. Should our 2 matches with the US end in draws, let's set the bar as high as possible for how many goals they would need to score against Cuba.
