I had a great conversation with USL President Francisco Marcos earlier this morning. While I can't put some of what he said regarding his overall thoughts on Puerto Rico's run and his league and the CONCACAF Champions League here right now, I did have the opportunity to talk to him about Montreal tonight and how he feels about their chances.
I wrote up a story for that for Goal.com. I'll have a column on some of the other stuff on SI.com tomorrow.
As far as Montreal goes, if they score one goal, it would force Santos to score four in order to win. They do have an opportunity to advance and make the CCL semis a USL-Mexico affair... well, it already is an exclusive USL-Mexico party but it could be two teams apiece instead of three Mexican teams and one USL representative.
This USL-MLS discussion is far from over, friends. And the USL is not a crackpot second-rate league either.
