Así vivieron los periodistas del Diario Diez de Honduras el empate ante Costa Rica por las eliminatorias. Kendall Waston scored in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time, giving Costa Rica a 1-1 tie against visiting Honduras on and clinching the Ticos' second straight World Cup berth and fifth overall. 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.

Six minutes later, Romell Quioto sprinted down the wing and crossed into the box, where Hernández connected with a thundering header to put the visitors in front.

Costa Rica (16 points) will finish second to Mexico (21), with those as the only two CONCACAF sides to have booked their tickets to Russian Federation.

The side, now ranked 21st in the world, only needed a point in San Jose to be sure of finishing in the top three of their qualifying group which will see them off to Russian Federation.

The U.S. and Niger forces were leaving a meeting with tribal leaders when they were ambushed. About 300 to the south in Cameroon provide logistical and intelligence support.

As such, defeat for United States of America and Los Canaleros dropping points is Honduras' most likely chance of automatically making it three World Cup finals in a row.

That result leaves Honduras trailing fourth-placed Panama on goal difference ahead of their home match against Mexico on Tuesday.

The draw is good news for the US men's national team, which is jockeying with Honduras and Panama for CONCACAF's final slots. "Our players know they are playing in the World Cup and they will surely get over it soon and focus on next game". They were quarter-finalists in Brazil in 2014 and reached the knockout stage in Italy in 1990.
