  1. I have a slight suspicion that if they only used one venue, it would be the Bradenton Florida Soccer Complex
  2. Exactly. Too many matches. The idea is to reduce the numbers of games. Check this interesting article about Concacaf potencial formats: https://canpl.ca/article/concacaf-world-cup-qualifying-potential-condensed-formats-to-consider
  3. Yesterday, all the sports sites in the Hispanic area of Concacaf highlighted that it is virtually certain that El Salvador would be in the final hex after the cancellation of the friendly dates in June. Even the Spanish journalist closely linked to the Concacaf Mister Chip (Alexis Martin-Tamayo) referred to it. In fact, this journalist usually anticipates the official statements of Concacaf, because he works indirectly for this ConferderaciĆ³n, advertising his tournaments. In Panama there is a saying that says: when the river sounds, stones bring. Let's not be surprised that all of this is well cooked. The best thing that could happen is that more FIFA dates will be suspended and thus a total format change would have to be made. I attach some links, sorry they are in Spanish but they refer the same https://www.tvn-2.com/deportes/Panama-oficialmente-Hexagonal-CONCACAF_0_5547195251.html https://us.marca.com/claro/futbol/seleccion-usa/2020/04/03/5e86bf8f22601da71a8b459f.html https://us.as.com/us/2020/04/03/futbol/1585865160_195411.html https://www.lateja.cr/deportes/hexagonal-de-concacaf-rumbo-a-catar-2020-esta/H7Z3HM7CD5D7POEBQKW2V24PH4/story/
  4. If the Covid19 problem becomes longer than expected and FIFA does not want to change the dates for Qatar 2022, the Concacaf qualifiers would have to be done in a tournament " a la Gold Gold" or as the Concacaf Women's World Cup qualification. Or implement home-away direct elimination matches to complete 6 countries in the final round and play the Hex in one venue, as happened with the Concacaf qualifiers of 1974 (Haiti), 1978 (Mexico) and 1982 (Honduras).
  5. The fairest thing would be to put Canada - El Salvador to play for a spot in the hex. Because of the Covid-19 situation, the friendly matches are cancelled and FIFA ranking is stagnant. The CSA could take advantage of this situation and request it to CONCACAF.
  6. According to this source this friendly is almost confirmed. Still looking for more information : El Salvador vs Belize next March 31 https://twitter.com/ElSalvadorBrFC/status/1232389909350146048?s=20
  7. No matter if they finish first or second in the group, they will still have to play vs the US.....šŸ˜©
  8. The conference will be today in Langford. This may indicate that the friendly match takes place at Westhills Stadium. It was time to use the CPI stadiums. Hopefully they are 2 or 3 friendly matches
  9. They decided to place Mexico separed from the USA for being the ones who played the final of the 2018 tournament. Bad Luck for Canada that was fourth behind Haiti. And with only two places available the thing does not look good for Canada. Will Canada have the ability to defeat the USA in the SF? It is the great mystery...
  10. I wonder what the name of the club will be. Real Ottawa (Royal Ottawa), Athletic Ottawa, Deportivo Ottawa? With all due respect to the Ex Fury fans, that "Fury"name was just terrible
  11. The mysterious and enigmatic CSA, sometimes I think it was more closed than the National Football Association of North Korea. Sorry for the pessimism, but Canada has immense potential and the CSA seem not to appreciate it.
  12. Draw next January 9/ 2020 Mexico and Honduras are seeded. Canada in Pot 2 with USA. Pot 3 Costa Rica and El Salvador. Pot 4 Haiti and Dominican Republic .https://www.elsiglocoahuila.mx/coahuila/noticia/331367.definen-fecha-para-sorteo-del-preolimpico-de-futbol.html
  13. The problem with the second round with home-away matches in QF, SF and final is that the minimum margin of error can leave out Canada ( remember Canada vs Guatemala in the road to Italy 1990) , this added to how irregular Hermann has been as a coach seems to be a risky route As long as it is not known against which conference the intercontinental play off will be played, the second route does not look very appealing.
  14. Qualifying to Tokyo 2020 is no longer so clear Brazil 4-0 Canada
  15. USA DETAILED ROSTER BY POSITION (CLUB; CAPS/GOALS): GOALKEEPERS (3): Brad Guzan (Atlanta United FC; 62/0), Sean Johnson (New York City FC; 8/0), Matt Turner (New England Revolution; 0/0) DEFENDERS (7): Reggie Cannon (FC Dallas; 9/0), Chase Gasper (Minnesota United FC; 0/0), Nick Lima (San Jose Earthquakes; 9/0), Aaron Long (New York Red Bulls; 14/2), Daniel Lovitz (Montreal Impact/CAN; 12/0), Mark McKenzie (Philadelphia Union; 0/0), Walker Zimmerman (LAFC; 11/2) MIDFIELDERS (5): Brenden Aaronson (Philadelphia Union; 0/0), Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy; 12/2), Djordje Mihailovic (Chicago Fire; 5/1), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew SC; 20/0), Jackson Yueill (San Jose Earthquakes; 4/0) FORWARDS (5): Paul Arriola (D.C.
