    CONCACAF:

    USA 1:0 Jamaica in Columbus, OH (Herculez Gomez scored on a free kick in the 55th minute)
    The USA (+2 goal differential), Guatemala (+2), and Jamaica (+1) have 7 points each so Jamaica is in third on goal differential.

    Mexico is the first country to advance to the Hexagonal.

    Cuba is the first Semifinalist to be eliminated. 128 countries (127 in qualifying and host Brazil) could still qualify for the World Cup and exactly 25% of them will.

    That was a superb free kick from Herculez Gomez. A big win for the U.S. Hopefully, Jurgen Klinsmann has Landon Donovan and Michael Bradley ready to go in the October set.

    Mexico is not a surprise for me. El Salvador is one win away against Costa Rica from advancing to the hexagon round.

    Panama is one win away against Honduras to reaching the Final 6.
