Now we Know What Catracho Means

El Salvador has got to be kicking themselves for giving up those late leads in their home games vs. TnT and the USA. With those 4 points, they would have had a huge opportunity to make the playoff next Wednesday.

Pavon's miss punctuated a crazy day of late game craziness.

Ireland jumped ahead of Italy only to have Italy equalize a few ticks later. The Azurri are in.

Peru ties Argentina in the 90th, but Marin Palermo gets a stoppage time rebound for the win. Which was made all the sweeter by Diego Forlan's late penalty winner in Quito. Next week it's a Argentina-Uruguay clasico for the last golden ticket in South America.

Gutsy performances all over the world. What a great day!
