As an aside, Argentina was annihalted by Bolivia today in CONMEBOL qualification, losing 6-1, tying their worst result ever in World Cup qualification. Hopefully, their luck won't spread north.

The United States plays Trinidad and Tobago in their third game of the fourth round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2010 World Cup in about...oh, 10 minutes or so. A win will give the U.S. a nine point total and an formidable (though not indomitable) lead in their group. The U.S. salvaged a tie against El Salvador on Saturday, and is hoping for a better performance against a T&T team that they defeated 3-0 the last time they met in the U.S. in September of last year, but who they lost to in T&T the next month. T&T has two draws thus far in this round of qualification, against Honduras and El Salvador, and will be hunting for a prized away victory tonight.
