Guatemala v Mexico
Trinidad & Tobago v Panama
Wed Jun 8
Panama v USA

-Carlos Ruiz will not be available for Guatemala on Saturday due to suspension. But that may not matter as he is suffering from an undetermined foot injury. If he is healthy he could play for FC Dallas on Saturday night in Salt Lake City.

LATE ADDITION:

What's up with that Meola link? Where'd you find it? Is this what he's been doing with his down time?

its real
i dont remember where i found that thing
but it seriously had me cracking up
i guess the guy has to do something with his free time

he must want a lot of money from mls to keep playing, other wise there are a couple teams that could use him: columbus & chivas for two
