One-sided evening

Seems Jozy Altidore is pretty good after all.

I've got way more thoughts on the United States' rout over Trinidad to come later but I'm focused on the other result, Honduras 3-1 over Mexico.

I've got thoughts on that too. For now, I'd say that Mexico needn't overreact since they've played just once at home and while they are terrible on the road thus far and have one road game upcoming, they do play four of the next five after that at home.

As far as the US, more of the same. Seven points after three games, first place, a World Cup spot is theirs to lose.

Elsewhere, Walter Centeno scored in the 69th minute as Costa Rica beat El Salvador in San Jose.

The standings are thus:

United States 7
Costa Rica 6
Honduras 4
Mexico 3
Trinidad & Tobago 2
El Salvador 2

What's up with Nery Castillo? He seemed to take the ball away from Pardo for the PK, he throws an elbow at a player, cleats another player, seems to argues with Magallón for kicking the ball out when a player was hurt.

Mexico sucked, but yeah there is many more games left.

Actually, El Salvador have 2 points.

Bradley needs to keep 4-4-2 with Ching and Altidore playing off each other. Nobody has an answer for that in the region. Now in Europe or South America - another story.
