Rain-soaked field obstacle for U.S. reaching World Cup

Rain-soaked field obstacle for U.S. reaching World Cup

Trinidad is already out of Cup contention, but U.S. defender Matt Besler still expects a tough game.

But for what it's worth, Costa Rica doesn't plan on lying down. "It is what it is and we're going to play the game".

The day after that game, while explaining his surly postgame news conference in Pittsburgh, coach Mike Zimmer said, "Where I get frustrated, is I want to protect my players".

"The conditions kind of stopped that (on Monday) so we couldn't do too much at training", Pulisic said.

Sunil Gulati, president of U.S. Soccer, said the final decision on whether the field in Couva is playable will be made a few hours before kickoff by the game commissioner and the head referee.

After defeating the home of Panama, the United States team made a strong request for the last direct ticket to the 2018 World Cup from the CONCACAF zone.

"I would love to see one of these hotshot teams from Europe come here and play in our CONCACAF qualifying and really get a taste of this and see what that's about", US coach Bruce Arena said.

"I would love to see one of these hotshot teams from Europe come here and play in our CONCACAF qualifying and really get a taste of this and see what that's about", US coach Bruce Arena said. The 2017 installment of their road game with the Chicago Bears was no different. "Now, I guess, I don't know how to explain it, it's getting a little stronger, getting a little more [physical]".

"No one plays football on an athletic track, so I think there's a skewed approach to what is being reported".

Faced with missing the World Cup again, Caligiuri took the initiative.

He settled a bouncing pass and dodged a defender by faking right and going left.

"It was all instinctive, the way it played out", Caligiuri said.

The Americans survived the remaining 60 minutes and won, 1-0. Only six other countries can say the same. "It really propelled USA soccer to where it is today". In fact, the match won't even be played in the capital city.

Mexico is now on 21 points and would overtake Costa Rica's record of 23 achieved in qualifying for the 2002 World Cup with a victory, while Honduras sits in fifth place and needs a positive result to have any chance of making Russian Federation 2018.

"There were a lot of things going on leading up to that game, a lot of criticism, a lot of things going on with our team", Pulisic said. "So many years later, it's Trinidad again".

Veterans like Howard and Bradley know full well what is at stake, and as hard as they know it will be, the sense around the US camp is that a soggy field isn't going to stand in the way of booking their ticket to the World Cup.
