Honduras is +700(7/1) tonight. I hate to do this as i am American. But thats just like stealing candy from a baby. Easy money. Sadly, I do not see any way we pick up anything from this match. The fact of the matter is, there is very little in the way of international quality on this current team. Outside of Pulisic, Cameron and Brooks, we've got very little of anything in the current squad. We need 4 points out of these games to even remain in contention. Wont happen. We're out of the world cup.

Ramsey thought he was playing for Arsenal then, Whelan went low with the head but Ramsey thought he'd get away
with the kick to the filbert.

That was fucking awful - I just watched it in slow motion - his leg snapped. Bale should have been red carded too - for exactly that same reason, that was a leg breaker, and then you see that wanker Coleman complaining about him getting a yellow.

Unbearable to watch injuries like that. Coleman is a good guy and a very good player, and just does not deserve it. Gutted for him. Hope for a clean break and quick recovery.

As for Taylor, his career is in peril now too, because sometimes those moments get into your head and you can't get them out. I couldn't re-watch the tackle - I just find it too upsetting - but if it was a nasty one, Taylor is going to have to live with it, come to terms with it.

Hmmmm, when you have your first shot on target in the 94th minute you can't really expect to win too many games.

Still, would have taken a draw before the game.

Just saw a picture of Coleman's leg. Definitely broken. Don't blame them for not showing replays.
