USA To Face Barbados In First Qualifiers

Barbados scored a very late goal to beat Dominica 1-0, and advance 2-1 on aggregate.

Their reward is to play the USA in a home and away series in the next round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying.

The 1st leg will be played on Sunday June 15 in the United States at the Home Depot Center in suburban LA.

The 2nd leg will take place within the week after that in Barbados. (I have seen the date Wednesday June 18th bandied about.)

By the way, can anyone tell me why the USA would have to play any possible extra time period on the road after the second leg in the case of a tie???
