The USMNT escape with a draw, Canada gets a huge win against Mexico, while Panama keeps pushing upward and Costa Rica stays alive at the death too.
CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying is now done for the calendar year of 2021. And thanks to a big win in Edmonton against Mexico, Canada now leads the table. Sean Garmer and Erik Watkins go through the big moments, the chippy play, and some horrid referee decisions as well in examining how Canada now has the 16 points. There’s also some talk about Mexico’s road ahead and how they could get back to being Mexico.
The USA struggled against Jamaica especially after a big goal from Michail Antonio that give the Reggae Boyz some new life. The guys discuss the major foul call, the lack of connectedness from the USA, and why they seemingly have issues getting up for away games so far through the first eight games.
Not to mention, there are the other two games to discuss as well, and of course a look around at the standings and upcoming fixtures left in the two windows as well.

About Soccer 2 The MAX
A Podcast about the world’s game from an American perspective. Each episode includes headlines, topics, and discussions that can be about anything that happened that week in Soccer, Futbol, or Football. And there are also thoughts on the team’s Sean Garmer, Erik Watkins, and Rachael Kriger each support, games they watched that week, and more. There will also be special editions focusing on the United States Men’s and Women’s National Teams, and other European or American league matches from time to time as well.
Being born into a Latino family, Sean grew up around the game of futbol. No matter what you deem to call it, Mr. Garmer enjoys the sport. Sean played Defender growing up and then transitioned to Goalkeeper in high school. Due to the University of North Texas not having a men’s soccer team at the time, his playing career ended in 2005.
However, since then, he’s kept up with Soccer by watching his favorite teams and leagues, while also writing as well. Sean was paid to cover the 2010 World Cup and has also written about the beautiful game for several other outlets. He is a supporter of several teams all around the world, but his two major loves are FC Dallas and Manchester United.
While he was never really the best on the field, Erik’s always had a deep-rooted passion for the beautiful game. From discovering it in Maryland thanks to DC United to cheering on Manchester United since the days of Ruud van Nistelrooy. Not to mention, considering donning purple hair to cheer Orlando City SC today. From MLS to USL and NASL (Viva Armada!) to even dreaming of training and playing in the MASL, if it’s soccer, he’s usually watching it.
