And we need like one point to be a virtual lock right?

Who do we play in September?
Not sure on the point(s) needed to lock, but we're at the top with 13, if I recall correctly, and three WCQ games remaining.
September 6 - Costa Rica
September 10 - Mexico
October 11 - Jamaica

All three matches show TBA as for location.
I was listening the other day to someone explain how we are almost a virtual lock right now. Only way to not make it is for the #4 team to get 9 or 7 points and us lose all three matches.

14 pts might get us 3rd most likely the playoff spot. No CONCACAF team has finished lower than 3rd in the Hex with 16pts though. 16 pts is the lock.
Ok. So we need a win or three draws. Mexico is tough but Jamaica is beatable. Costa Rica is a coin flip
Sept 6 @ Costa Rico: a point would be nice. Going to be difficult though. They want revenge from the snow game.

Sept 10 vs. Mexico: kinda depends on how Mexico's form continues. We've had magic in the past at Columbus. Hopefully continues.

Oct 11 vs. Jamaica: 3 points

Oct 15 @ Panama: hopefully we've already locked up a spot by then. Playing at Panama has always been tough for the U.S. Panama may need this game badly to get the fourth spot.
Hmmm. So Panama shows up as our last WCQ match. Thanks for updating, TN_Tiger. I absolutely despise the 'tables' and web pages on both FIFA and ESPN. Getting update info is like pulling teeth, or worse, with them. Anyway, if we have yet a fourth match, and it includes both Jamaica and Panama, we're looking good to finish in the top three and qualify.

I think while used as an excuse the snow actually help Costa Rica. Could have easily been 2 or 3 goal win. So not beyond reality to go in there and at least get tie if not an outright win. Think a win is very possible against Mexico at home.As long as we do not lose any games by more than just 1 or 2 goals we should be ok.
as was said above, we have 4 games left. 16 points will qualify us. it is hard to envision we won't beat Jamaica at home. It also seems unlikely honduras will pass us as they have to play both costa rica and mexico
