With the World Cup barely a year away, there’s a packed slate of results I’ll be watching this week. Will the US continue its relatively straightforward qualification to another appearance? Can Bolivia maintain the slimmest hopes of qualifying alive?
- Costa Rica vs USA – Wednesday, June 3rd. The Americans have never won, a tie would be more than acceptable.
- Bolivia vs Venezuela – Saturday, June 6th. Bolivia needs all 3 points from this home match in La Paz, but Venezuela has long ceased being guaranteed easy points.
- USA vs Honduras – Saturday, June 10th. The US should continue winning at home, this time in Chicago.
- Chile vs Bolivia – Tuesday, June 10th. A point on the road would be ideal, but I don’t honestly expect anything out of this match.
