The USMNT's World Cup Qualifier Might Be A Little Underwater

The USMNT's World Cup Qualifier Might Be A Little Underwater”

The area around the field was flooded.

The U.S. national team was met by soggy conditions for training on Monday ahead of its game against Trinidad and Tobago.

One corner of the playing field was entirely submerged by water while United States players could be seen wading through the water to get to the pitch. The running track and a corner were completely underwater.

"Further, although the water basin on the track around the field was visibly high, the decision to use or not use the field is at the discretion of the Match Commissioner", it added.

Before that happened, players chose to walk through the water and begin training.

The conditions forced the majority of the team to train behind the goal in an attempt to preserve the playing surface. The heavy rains have happened in the last 48 hours and could continue tomorrow.

Trinidad and Tobago has a more modern stadium that would likely have no problem getting ready for this game - Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain - but the federation chose this venue instead. The US did not say much about the conditions but an official said they would give more information later today.

The US would qualify with a win while a draw could also end up doing the same as the two teams behind need to score plenty of goals. A field with a moat around it is something new, but at least the field looks OK for the game.
