Securing the ticket to the Qatar 2022 World Cup on this FIFA date looks like a complicated scenario, but not impossible for the United States National Team, same that marches in the second place of the Octagonal.

Although it is possible that Gregg Berhalter’s team reach your place in Qatar 2022 mathematically, needs an important combination of results to celebrate the return to a fair World Cup after being left out in Russia 2018.

The first step that the USMNT must take to obtain the ticket to the World Cup on this FIFA date is to win each of its matches against El Salvador, Canada and Honduras, respectively, since adding 9 units would reach 24 points.

But nevertheless, this sum does not guarantee the classification by itself, because there are two factors that must be taken into account for the classification.

The first of them is that Both Mexico and Panama, teams that are third and fourth, respectively, did not win any of their matches on this qualifying round, a scenario that looks complicated, because like Canada and the USMNT itself, these two teams have been among the most constant in the tie.

In addition to the disasters of the Tricolor and the Canaleros, The USA needs Jamaica, Costa Rica and El Salvador to close the qualifying round with less than 14 points.

Thus, Adding all three factors together is how Team USA could earn its ticket to Qatar. And although it seems unlikely, the truth is that a positive result in terms of wins would leave him either a victory or even a draw, either his own or someone else’s, to ensure his participation in the World Cup on the FIFA date in March.
