  1. It looks like the FIFA rankings have been updated today. I've never seen the rankings listed to 2 decimal places before, so that seems to be new. No more rounding up or down I guess. The current points for the top 10 in CONCACAF: Mexico 1629.56 USA 1555.42 Jamaica 1432.65 Costa Rica 1423.40 Honduras 1361.21 El Salvador 1341.24 Canada 1340.56 CuraΓ§ao 1323.06 Panama 1321.97 Haiti 1290.62 We're now just 0.68 points behind El Salvador for 6th and 20.65 points behind Honduras for 5th. Hopefully there are 4 victories in June to add to our total. πŸ˜€
  2. I like that for the match with Suriname, we will be arranging where it's played since it's our home match. Aruba gets to arrange our first match in June. Last month, they played their home match at IMG Academy in Bradenton. If they do the same thing again and go with IMG in June (assuming it can't be played in Aruba), that could work out incredibly well for us. We could arrange our home match against Suriname for IMG and we'd get to play the final 2 matches of the opening round in the exact same location. With potentially 4 matches in June, if there was an opportunity to have no travel be
  3. Had to do some serious digging to find this thread! Page 21 on the forum! πŸ˜‚ The next FIFA ranking update will be on April 7th. Even though our ranking points won't mean a whole lot in the short-term, it feels great to be earning points again from the March window. Hopefully we can keep adding to our point total in June with 4 more wins (Aruba, Suriname, Group E winner x 2) and advance to the Octagonal. The great news is: It looks like the 12-point gap El Salvador had on us for 6th in CONCACAF is gone, thanks to their draw with Montserrat. πŸ˜€ If the website I've been checking
  4. I think people have incorrectly assumed we were getting the ball from their net or from their GK in order to run it back. It may have looked like that, but I think it was just a CanMNT player wanting to get the game ball for a teammate who had just scored their first national team goal.
  5. Excellent! We've matched Suriname's entire goal output vs. the Cayman Islands in the first 25 minutes! πŸ™Œ πŸ˜€
  6. 2 nice milestones for Piette in successive games: He gets his 50th cap for Canada in the match vs. Bermuda, and today he captains CanMNT for the 1st time.
  7. Very excited for tonight! Pedal to the metal. Let's see the scoreline we should have had vs. Bermuda. I really want Cavallini to score multiple goals so that he gets his confidence back. Anything +6 or better gets us 1st in the group on goal differential heading into June. Let's get it. Secure the goal differential lead today and then increase it even more in June against Aruba. Let's hope all the test results are negative for both teams and everything goes ahead tonight. Can't wait for kickoff!
  8. From Neil Davidson on Twitter. The domino effect that led to today's events began when Cayman Islands left Suriname for Florida: - The team's charter flight from Suriname to Sarasota, Florida was turned away by U.S. Customs - Plane diverted to Miami, but then they were told they couldn't land there since it wasn't a scheduled flight - Plane diverted to Tampa, but no lab in the Tampa area could get results before Monday - Did rapid tests instead at the hotel so they could get results in time for today's match, but the rapid test results weren't accepted since they weren't PCR tests
  9. When you think about what the scoreline could be in our match vs. Cayman Islands, some of the other top seeds are coming very close to dropping points to the pot 4 team in their group. Panama barely pulled off a victory (again), it took Curacao until first half stoppage time just to regain the lead, and Trinidad and Tobago is tied at the half. A little too close for comfort if you're a top seed, considering the pot 4 countries are ranked 25th-29th in the region.
  10. I would love to see Montserrat get a result tonight against El Salvador. πŸ™Œ Montserrat was just seconds away from earning a draw against El Salvador during Nations League Qualifying in 2018. Any result for Montserrat against El Salvador would be a feel-good story, plus it would bring El Salvador back a few points in the FIFA rankings. πŸ˜€
  11. Best case scenario: The missed deadline is the only thing that prevented today's match from taking place, not the test results themselves. If that's the case, there's still a chance every Cayman Islands player had a negative test result. Fingers crossed everyone tests negative on both teams and the match is played tomorrow. πŸ˜€
  12. FIFA is saying the Cayman Islands was not able to submit the required testing information in time. So they could all be negative but they just missed the deadline to submit their results? Let's hope that's the case! πŸ˜€
  13. Really looking forward to this one today. Pedal to the metal. Let's see the scoreline we should have had vs. Bermuda. I really want Cavallini to score multiple goals so that he gets his confidence back. Anything +6 or better gets us 1st in the group on goal differential heading into June. Let's get it. Secure the goal differential lead today and then increase it even more in June against Aruba.
  14. I was looking at the Group E schedule now that Saint Lucia has withdrawn. In the event that the Group B vs. E matchup in Round 2 is Canada vs. Haiti, something positive to take away is that the Haiti vs. Saint Lucia match was part of this window and not the June window. Haiti still has 2 matches to play in June just like we do. It would have been unfortunate if we had to play 2 matches in 4 days before Round 2 started and they only had to play 1.
