Costa Rica-Honduras World Cup qualifier postponed until Saturday

Up to that point, the fans and the players were resigned to have to wait to Tuesday, in the game against Panama, to officially qualify.

Romell Quioto crossed from the left for Eddie Hernandez who managed to get between two defenders and head home what seemed set to be a decisive goal for Honduras on the road to Russian Federation.

Costa Rica join Mexico in qualifying for the World Cup in Russian Federation and US will fill the third CONCACAF space if they can beat Trinidad and Tobago in their next match. Kendall Watson equalized in the fifth minute of stoppage time to secure a 1-1 draw against Honduras, good enough to clinch a place at the 2018 World Cup.


The Waston goal means the United States likely needs at most a draw at Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday (Oct. 10) night to qualify for its eighth straight World Cup show.

Spain had taken the lead in the 5th minute through an own goal by Brazil's Wesley.

Goal difference has become key: the U.S. are plus-five, Panama minus-two and Honduras minus-seven meaning the Americans should only need a draw to go through.


The Socceroos will be trying to advance to the next stage of the playoffs when they play Syria in Sydney on Tuesday night.

Costa Rica has 16 points and is second in the final round of qualifying in the CONCACAF region behind Mexico, which has 21 points and clinched last month.

When it comes to separating the two sides locked on ten points, if Panama match Honduras' result only a five-goal swing in goal difference in favour of Los Catrachos can prevent Panama coming out on top.


The Americans would be eliminated only if they lose and Panama and Honduras both win.
