The US got extremely lucky last night, getting goals in the 76th and 87th minutes to pull even with a 2-2 draw against El Salvador. Not sure if this was a case of extremely poor play, looking past a clearly over matched opponent, shaky play in the opposition’s stadium, or some combination of the above. At any rate, escaping with a tie was much better than the alternative. The end result is that Team USA now sits at the top of the CONCACAF table with a one point margin over Mexico and Costa Rica.
Next up, Wednesday night (April 1) is Trinidad & Tobago. Team USA should take care of business, and control of the CONCACAF table as an early favorite to advance to the 2010 World Cup.
