Hex Foes Abroad
United States Sets Sights on Jamaica, Panama
The U.S. has qualified, rendering the final two Hex matches somewhat academic. Still, you need to keep tabs on the best of the best from Jamaica and Panama. Now, onward.
As a friendly reminder, Honduran, Costa Rican, and Mexican players will make sporadic appearances in the CONCACF Report but not in Hex Foes Abroad since the U.S. won't see them again in the Hex.
