    So there have been some very interesting world cup qualiying results and some supprise qualifications.(For the playoffs at least.)


    Slovakia who need a point vs Slovenia to make their first major tournament, should they lose Slovenia will go through and the Czech republic will have no chance to make the playoffs. Go Slovakia

    Bosnia and Hercegovina made the playoffs at the expense of Turkey and Belgium. What an awesome result if they made the finals so soon after the civil war.

    SERBIA, yeah baby, Serbia are automatic qualifiers ahead of France, Austria and Romania. JUST AWESOME

    Ireland, who made the playoffs and who had an opportunity to sneak the group till Italys late equaliser

    Hell of a comeback for the US. Falling behind every match isn't a good strategy but it's been working.

    great stuff from the yanks! I was watching from a choppy internet feed so sometimes I couldnt tell who was who but Donovan and Holden seemed to be the best players for the U.S. Loved the way they had a decent amount of possesion at the end of the game instead of going into their usual bunker mode (the PK miss helped too). Great result, I honestly thought they were going to get smoked in Honduras....glad I was wrong

    wow. scary and sad

    Charlie Davies, a striker for the United States national soccer team, was involved in a one-car accident early Tuesday in suburban Washington, D.C., in which another person was killed, a U.S. Soccer Federation spokesman said.

    Davies was in surgery Tuesday afternoon at Washington Hospital Center and in stable condition, U.S. Soccer said in a statement. The extent of his injuries were unknown, but U.S. Soccer spokesman Neil Buethe said they were not life-threatening.

    Davies, who also plays for the French first-division club Sochaux, was expected to require more than 5 hours of surgery.

    Charlie Davies has four goals in 17 games with the U.S. national team.

    It was not known whether Davies was the driver or a passenger in the car.

    The U.S. national team was in Washington to play a World Cup qualifying match against Costa Rica on Wednesday. The team has already qualified for the 2010 World Cup.

    "Obviously, as a team we were saddened to learn this news," national team coach Bob Bradley said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Charlie and his family, as well as the people in the car and the families of the others involved. As a team, we are relying on each other in a moment that has for sure hit us all hard."

    Three people were inside the car when it crashed into a metal guardrail along the George Washington Memorial Parkway at about 3:15 a.m. ET on Tuesday, U.S. Park Police spokesman David Schlosser said, according to The Washington Post.

    One of the three occupants was pronounced dead and the two others were taken to a hospital with serious injuries, the newspaper reported.

    "The car was pretty much split in half," Schlosser said, according to the report.

    The U.S. Park Police identified the person who died as Ashley J. Roberta, 22, of Phoenix, Md.

    According to The Washington Post, she was a friend of Los Angeles Galaxy forward Alecko Eskandarian, who formerly played for D.C. United and was in Washington to consult with doctors for a head injury.

    According to the report, Roberta sent Eskandarian an e-mail Monday about meeting with friends that evening, but he said he did not get the message in time.

    "I'm just devastated," Eskandarin said Tuesday, according to the report. "I feel terrible for Charlie and terrible about my friend and her family. It's been a rough day."

    Davies started and played 78 minutes in the U.S.'s 3-2 win at Honduras last Saturday, which clinched the team's berth in next year's World Cup in South Africa. He has four goals in 17 matches with the national team.

    damn even more

    Details of the surgery were not made available, but a USSF spokesman said the injuries were "possibly" career-threatening. No other players were in the vehicle, the USSF said.
    [UPDATE] The USSF clarified the statement about Davies's future, saying it is unclear at the moment how the injuries will impact his career.
    The one-car accident occurred around 3:15 a.m. on the southbound lanes of the parkway near the Memorial Bridge. A park police spokesman told reporters that the driver apparently lost control of the vehicle and struck a metal railing. A 22-year-old woman died at the scene. It is unclear whether Davies was the driver or one of two passengers. [UPDATE] The USSF was told by police that Davies was not driving.
