As a former competitive soccer player, playing a game on a snowy and/or frozen pitch is awful and frankly dangerous cause its rock hard.  There is a reason they take the winter off in Northern European countries.  That being said, its as dangerous as playing among the animals at Azteca so LOLZ

The US has also had a March game against Costa Rica in Denver where it snowed; the "Snow Clasico."

They stole that point and failed to build on the Mexico win. Seems a pattern with this coach and this team. Every time they say "we're focused on the next one" after a surprise result, they look unenthused and arrogant in their play.

It would have been nice if Honduras and/or El Salvador would have been able to hold onto their halftime leads v. Panama.  Or at least forced them to draw.  Automatic qualification would have been a slam dunk had that happened.

Yea there’s a pretty clear divide between top 4 and bottom 4, and it’s kinda disappointing that in a window where we beat Mexico, Panama closes the gap on us because we couldn’t beat Jamaica. We need to avoid that playoff at all costs. The good news is that in the January window we have two home games against the two worst teams in the “oct” and a road game in Canada, while Panama has two road games, including one at Azteca where Mexico should be close to desperate. I would think 7 points in January should see the job done.

USMNT announces home locations for the January/February window. El Salvador in Columbus, a likely road trip to Hamilton for Iceteca II with Canada, then to St. Paul to take on Honduras. Guessing the hope is the players will acclimate to the cold in the first game. Those could be some brutal qualifying weather environments.

St Paul in February is certainly a choice

Origi with another huge timely goal for Liverpool today.  Klopp told him "Go out and be Divock" before sending him on late in the match.

I can't think of another player like him during his Liverpool tenure.  He's like a soccer version of Robert Horry.  Never a regular starter and a bit lacking up top when he's been a relied upon striker, but has been incredible as a super sub and has some of the biggest goals in recent LFC history.

The fact that he's been in that role for 6 seasons is wild.  Especially for a European international.  Just a true commitment to Klopp and the club.  The craziest thing is that he's only 26 as well.

Jesse Marsch will be the new manager at Leipzig.  That's a pretty big deal.

...and he was sacked today.  They are 11th place in the Bundesliga and have lost three straight.

Watched every match this season. The system worked. As best it could given Leipzig sold the spine over the summer.

But in every other match a wildly stupid decision by a defender in or around the box or a midfielder who was too easily dispossessed late in the game did them in. Dropped too many points from a winning position.

Everton just got VAR'd so brutally.  Not at all in the spirit of the rule.

UPDATE:  Apparently ball dont lie

Yeah that was something.  The announcers were great.

I've never understood why soccer announcers are so quick to declare a win or loss when there is still time on the clock as they did here. I remember Ian Darke lamenting on the USWNT losing against Brazil in 2011 when Abby Wambach decided that wasn't going to happen. Here, it's Everton. If anyone in the EPL can give up a lead in the final four minutes it would be them (like when Pickford misplayed a high ball in the final minutes against Liverpool a few years back after the announcers declared the match would end in a draw).

That was a wicked shot and goal too.
