Esto sí es Concacaf. We go from A to C after a crazy finale
Any thoughts on why attendance at the first leg of Jamaica-Canada (in Jamaica) seemed so low? I was surprised by all the empty seats.
Last night was devastating for fans of Los Catrachos 🇭🇳. I’m in agreement that there were some questionable decisions from the crew (especially around the PKs...before it even started and during.) Personally I think Honduras should’ve kept pressure on even after going down 1-0. If Honduras could’ve scored once, Mexico would’ve needed 4 goals! They tried to absorb pressure too long and broke at last second (a second many will question if it should’ve happened).
Seems like CONCACAF could have always moved the hypothetical Mexico-Trinidad Copa play-in game to Arlington and pushed the Panama-Honduras CNF semifinal game to Frisco if need be. Or played a triple header in Jerry World?
In any case, in terms of the rigged look, the extra two minutes didn't bother me as Honduras had multiple minutes of time wasting injuries in the given 9 minutes - the penalty retakes, though, were questionable as it looked like the Mexican keeper was off his line too, especially on the final kick by Najar, but it wasn't called.
