As a result of the round to the finish of the selection with 19 points and the difference of the balls 7-9 Panamanians occupy the fourth place in the group, from which they cannot go lower.

The United States have never truly got going in their Hexagonal qualifying, though whenever the team has really needed to pull off a big result, they've managed to do so.

"There's always something", said US midfielder Michael Bradley about playing on the road in CONCACAF.

The U.S. team consists of 17 players who play in Major League Soccer, three each in England and Mexico and two in Germany.

OR they lose at Trinidad & Tobago AND Panama beats Costa Rica (by any scoreline) AND Honduras beats Mexico (by any scoreline). Having been absent for four decades from the World Cup, a solitary Paul Caligiuri goal would end their stint in something of an worldwide purgatory and revitalise the sport. So relax! Enjoy! Sit back and watch the USMNT qualify for the World Cup and hope this is the game Clint Dempsey breaks the all-time goal record for US Soccer.

The telecast of the game at Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva, Trinidad will begin at 5 English on cable's beIN Sports and in Spanish on UNIVERSO. While a win automatically qualifies the US, there are a number of possible outcomes that could push them forward even if they don't beat Trinidad & Tobago.

If Pulisic can't go, then the supporting cast that performed so well against Panama will need to provide the kind of collective effort that can compensate for the midfielder's absence, conditions be damned. However, Team USA took the field despite warnings from Mr. John about the unsuitability of the surface at the time and the impeding of preparation for Tuesday's game. The 27-year-old is in fine form in MLS, recording two goals and two assists and helping the Loons to three wins in their last four games before heading out on global duty. But you can't. There isn't anything we could do. Between the lines the referee's supposed to be controlling the game so I can't protect him. You try your best to do what you can. "I'm envious of hockey players and baseball players, but we can't". "My dad would just be like, 'Get up!' It was a good balance, I guess".

Pulisic, 19, was injured in the second half of Friday's win. The tattoo is of a giant bald eagle in front of a giant American flag. And by fun I mean people on twitter freak out. "I like tattoos. I'm just like any other soccer player". That reality has left USA coach Bruce Arena shaking his head when asked what he can do to better protect his young star.
