U.S. v. T&T

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. 

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.
