Was this good for the US or not? I don’t get what’s going on at all.

There are 8 teams in this region of the world basically trying for 3 spots in the 2022 world cup. Everybody plays each other twice (so 14 games per team) and after all that, the top 3 teams make it in. We are now 8 games into those 14 games, and the US is on top of the group.
Today's result was ok. Jamaica is p good and we just don't want to lose. We beat Mexico 2-0 the other day which was the big one we had to have

There's a good chance we finish 3rd though.
Two matches to go:
USA has vs Panama and @ Costa Rica, who just became the first squad to beat Canada during WCQ
Mexico has @ Honduras and vs El Salvador
Canada has vs Jamaica and @ Panama

Astute observation

USA has vs Panama and @ Costa Rica, who just became the first squad to beat Canada during WCQ
Mexico has @ Honduras and vs El Salvador
Canada has vs Jamaica and @ Panama
1st, 2nd, 3rd? Meh

true enough. a lot would need to happen, but there is a non-zero % chance the US finishes 4th and would have to beat New Zealand (most likely) to qualify.

also i forgot how much had to happen for the US to miss in 2018, lol

Quote
Coming into the match, American fans were rightfully confident. All it would take to qualify for the World Cup was a win or a tie against Trinidad and Tobago, a team that had nothing to play for but pride and only one win in nine matches in the final qualifying group. And even if somehow the U.S. lost, Honduras and Panama would both need victories over the top two teams in the group, Mexico and Costa Rica, to complete the elimination. If the USMNT lost and only one of Honduras or Panama won, the US would be headed for a playoff against Australia. By ESPN’s Soccer Power Index, the United States had a 93 percent chance of reaching its eighth consecutive World Cup.

Then the U.S. conceded two goals in the first half — first an own goal and then a blistering 35-yard strike — despite giving up little in the way of high-quality chances. And despite a halftime switch to bring on Clint Dempsey and line up two attackers behind strikers Bobby Wood and Jozy Altidore, the U.S. could not create the chances to level the score. USMNT fans could only watch in horror, and Panama and Honduras both clawed back first-half deficits to knock the U.S. out of World Cup qualification.

That was a similar scenario for Mexico in 2014 but Graham Zusi saved their asses, they did not return the favor 4 years later.

Last cycle we only had to lose (of the things we controlled) and in this cycle we would need to get destroyed.  As little concern as the last one deserved, this cycle deserves even less.
