In a match postponed a day because of a tropical storm, Eddie Hernandez's header from Romell Quioto's cross put Honduras ahead in the 66th minute.

In the remaining fixtures of the round, Honduras host Mexico on Tuesday, while Costa Rica go to Panama and the United States travel to bottom side Trinidad and Tobago. The Vancouver Whitecaps defender outjumped Maynor Figueroa and Johnny Palacios to head the ball past Donis Escober to the goalkeeper's left from 8 yards. 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.

Germany's Noah Awuku, who came on as a second half substitute capitalised on Costa Rica centre-back Fernan Faerron's mistake to score a late victor for his team.

After coming from behind to tie 1-1, Costa Rica, with 16 points, joins Mexico (21) in advancing from the North and Central America and Caribbean (CONCACAF) region with three final matches to play on Tuesday.




The draw is good news for the USA men's national team, which is jockeying with Honduras and Panama for CONCACAF's final slots.

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

The United States moved into third place on 12 points on Friday with a 4-0 romp over Panama.

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.

In addition, the U.S. could qualify with a loss if Panama and Honduras both fail to win on Tuesday. They were quarter-finalists in Brazil in 2014 and reached the knockout stage in Italy in 1990.
