CONCACAF Champions League: Records by country

CONCACAF Championship League play has wrapped for the year 2010. Toronto FC won't be moving on to the knockout stages. Some other teams will be. The following is my weak-ass version of the UEFA coefficient (it is a version of said coefficient because it ranks the performances of club teams in the continental competition, not because it is accurate or should be used for determining seeding or anything else important)

I keep posting it because Canadian teams (first Montreal, now Toronto), rank fairly well. Panama dropped pretty hard this year, while the teams above them, particularly Costa Rica, USA, and Honduras, took a nice bump.

The digits:

CONCACAF Champions League Record by Country
Country W D L GF GA PTS PPG GF/G GA/G DIFF
Mexico 73 22 26 268 114 241 1.99 2.21 0.94 1.27

Belize

2 0 12 0 0 0 6 -6


More (and different) numbers to come tomorrow. For those who have been following (blog sidebar content!), you'll know that Montreal are about to be crowned the "most Canadian" of the three major domesic teams. Even a 100% Canadian squad on the field in TFC's last match wouldn't be enough to change that. Expect a Saturday or Sunday post to celebrate this achievement.
