It was a great international date yesterday as both Chivas USA's Ante Jazic and Oswaldo Minda took a victory with their respective national teams.
Jazic played all 90 minutes in the Canadian National Team's 1-0 victory over Panama in BMO Field. With the win, the Reds have moved up in Group C from second to first place with seven points. Although the Canadians took the victory, Panama sits just one point away; Jazic and Canada will have to take yet another victory in Panama City next Tuesday if they wish to remain up top.
Meanwhile, midfielder Oswaldo Minda was on bench for the Ecuadorian National Team's 1-0 victory over Bolivia in Quito, Ecuador. With the win, Ecuador moves up to third place in the standings with 12 points (the top three teams automatically earn a berth in the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup). Up next for La Tri is an away match against Uruguay in Montevideo this Tuesday, September 11. The Uruguayans suffered a brutal 4-0 defeat last night to Colombia; the Ecuadorans will try to take advantage of the team's standing and earn yet another three points.
