Away qualifiers in CONCACAF

There’s been a lot of talk these days about the difficulty of away World Cup Qualifiers in CONCACAF (and everywhere else, for that matter).  Here is Ives Galarcep’s take on the “Hazards of away qualifiers.”

We here at Project 2010 (the Blog) are of a different opinion.  As Luis Bueno demonstrates in article, “Debunking the myth,” The USA (as well as Mexico and Costa Rica, for that matter) has a history of good results in away qualifiers.  In another post on the blog, Bueno points out that if you exclude matches against Mexico and Costa Rica (the other two of the “big three”), the USA has not lost a road qualifier since 1980 to Canada.  

Although we’re happy to have our 6 points and first place, maybe we’re not wrong to expect a little more…
