Costa Rica-Honduras World Cup qualifier postponed until Saturday

Costa Rica and other Central American nations have been hit by tropical storm Nate. More

Costa Rica won through to the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ on Saturday with a match to spare, but it took a dramatic equaliser from Kendall Waston deep into injury time to earn Los Ticos the point they required.

The 2014 World Cup quarterfinalists sealed a spot in Russian Federation in dramatic fashion on Saturday.

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.

Kendall Waston scored in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time to clinch Costa Rica's second-straight World Cup berth and fifth overall.

The U.S.is at 12 points following its 4-0 win Friday over Panama and would qualify with a win at Trinidad on the final night of the hexagonal.

Given the U.S. MNT's advantage in goal difference on both Honduras and Panama, a draw in Trinidad & Tobago would nearly certainly do the job for head coach Bruce Arena's side.

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

Meanwhile, Nigeria became the first team from Africa to qualify, doing it with a game to spare and emerging from the so-called "group of death" after beating Zambia 1-0 at home on Saturday.

Only the five group winners qualify from Africa, and at least three of the groups will go down to the wire and the last games next month. The anguish of Honduran fans having their first World Cup since 2010 slip from the jaws of victory was almost as compelling as video of the goal.

In addition, the US could qualify with a loss if Panama and Honduras both fail to win Tuesday.
