That was pretty fancy, and it most likely earned Mexico the playoff spot for the World Cup. Panama now has to beat the US and hope Costa Rica can beat Mexico enough to swing the goal differential Panama's way.
So now that the US has locked up the top spot in the Hex, do they send the B squad to Panama? I guess last night was already somewhat of a B squad with all the injuries. I don't advocate tanking the match to help Panama and screw Mexico, but I think it's good that Klinsman has been working more guys into the lineup to get experience. Depth has always been a problem with the USMNT, so the more experience our subs get, the better.
