Costa Rica Qualify For World Cup After Dramatic Last-Minute Equaliser V Honduras

Costa Rica Qualify For World Cup After Dramatic Last-Minute Equaliser V Honduras

The chances of Honduras to hit the main event of the 2018 World Cup in connection with the defeat of Panama increased slightly.

In the fifth of a minimum six minutes of stoppage time, a long ball from deep in Costa Rica's end following a throw-in was headed from about 23 yards out by Hernandez.

Waston has three global goals, including a 4-yard header from Christian Bolanos' 68th-minute corner kick on March 28 that gave Costa Rica a 1-1 draw in a qualifier at Honduras.

Costa Rica have 16 points and are second in the final round of North and Central American and Caribbean region qualification, behind Mexico, who have 21 points and clinched a World Cup berth last month.

The draw also sees Panama remain in the playoff position in CONCACAF on 10 points, level with Honduras which could have jumped up to fourth had the side been able to hang on for the win.




Goal difference has become key: the U.S.is plus-five, Panama minus-two and Honduras minus-seven.

The United States now occupies third place in the table after beating Panama 4-0 on Friday night, which leaves Bruce Arena's side in control of its own destiny heading into the final match of the Hexagonal.

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

Honduras is still in the hunt for a top-four finish, now fifth with nine points, just behind on goal differential to the United States in fourth. They must now hope to beat already-qualified Mexico and hope both Panama and the United States lose.
