Trinidad And Tobago Notes

Just a couple things to touch on as we all get our matchday eve jitters out of the way:

-The US has a 15-2-3 record vs. Trinidad dating back to 1982.

-The US has a 4-2-2 record in Trinidad.

-A win tomorrow night coupled with an El Salvador loss or draw will ensure a top 4 finish for the US, meaning at worst they will be sent to a playoff with the 5th place team from South America.

-A win vs. Trinidad tomorrow will give the United States 16 points. That would have been good enough to qualify in 2006. It took 17 points in 2002. However, it might take 18 this year.

Players to watch: These 7 players will be suspended for a match if they get booked tomorrow night:

Benny Fielhaber

Landon Donovan

Ricardo Clark

Jozy Altidore

Carlos Bocanegra

Steve Cherundolo

Clint Dempsey

-In the game against El Salvador, Landon Donovan broke Kasey Keller’s record for most appearances in World Cup Qualfying with 32.

-Kickoff is at 7 PM Eastern on ESPNClassic and ESPN360.com
