CONCACAF Olympic qualifying draw set for Tuesday

CONCACAFLogo

The United States Under-23 national team will find out its road to London soon enough.

CONCACAF announced that it will hold its draw for the Olympic qualifying tournament on Tuesday at the organization's headquarters in New York.

The eight teams in the draw (United States, Canada, Cuba, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Panama and Trinidad & Tobago) will be split into two groups of four, with one group playing its games at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., and the other heading to LP Field in Nashville, Tenn., for the tournament that begins on March 22.

Who do you hope up ends up in the same group as the USA? Which non-Mexico nation do you think would give the USA the biggest problem?

    How does this work? are their pots or can any four teams be grouped together?

  2. Tony in Quakeland says:

    Give us Cuba, T&T and El Salvador.

  3. Postmaster says:

    You have to expect USA/Mexico will be in separate groups for a variety of reasons, but I don’t recall seeing that as official. I imagine they’ll place the top 2 in separate groups based on FIFA rankings. Of course, that does not guarantee anything past the groups.

    20 Mexico

    34 USA

    51 Panama

    54 Honduras

    69 El Salvador

    72 Canada

    92 Cuba

    Oops.

    86 Trinidad and Tobago

    Not sure if the us and mexico are seeded or not. But if we _do_ get drawn with el tri, it would at least guarantee that we wouldn’t meet them in the do-or-die semifinal. Should we advance of course.

  6. away goals says:

    Unforgivable.

  7. Lorenzo says:

    That, my friend, is smart thinkin.

  8. Henry says:

    These rankings are for senior teams. They will not use the senior teams to allocate pots.

    Do all teams uses their U-23′s?
