World Cup Qualifier: US 1-0 Trinidad & Tobago
Congrats to the US Men for their 1-0 win on Wednesday night. I haven't finished watching the game — I had a family commitment that conflicted — but it looks like Landry was correct in his post below. Trinidad and Tobago did a good job of staying organized, and brought some fight into the game. However, there were several clear chances that the US should have converted, and the late goal that was mistakenly disallowed for offsides. So perhaps the scoreline is a bit misleading. The Nats will have to get better at finishing their chances. That starts with Landon, but he's been scoring like crazy so an off game (particularly a win) can be forgiven.
