Qualifier between Costa Rica and Honduras postponed because of storm

Qualifier between Costa Rica and Honduras postponed because of storm

Germany and Costa Rica both commit a number of mistakes during their Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup encounter on Friday, but both the coaches were not ready to put knife to their throat for committing.

A powerful header from Eddie Hernandez put Honduras in front in the 66th minute in the World Cup qualifier in San Jose, in a clash pushed back a day due to Tropical Storm Nate.

Costa Rica had a golden chance to take the lead in the 60th minute.

Ruiz played the ball from his left foot to his right to fake his way past Acosta, dribbled past Izaguirre and crossed to Waston.

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.

Goal difference has become key: the USA are plus-five, Panama minus-two and Honduras minus-seven meaning the Americans should only need a draw to go through. Panama is in fourth place with 10 points; Honduras also has 10 points, but Panama has the advantage on Honduras on goal differential.

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

A resounding 4-0 win over Panama on Friday did wonders for the U.S. Men's National Team in its pursuit of the country's eighth straight World Cup appearance.

In addition, the US could qualify with a loss if Panama and Honduras both fail to win Tuesday. They must now hope to beat already-qualified Mexico and hope both Panama and the United States lose.
