Announcer goes insane after Whitecaps' Waston sends Costa Rica to World Cup

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.

The match had been postponed by 24 hours after heavy rainfall, and a 66th minute goal from Eddie Hernandez for Honduras may have also delayed Costa Rican celebrations.

Costa Rica join Mexico in qualifying for the World Cup in Russian Federation and United States of America will fill the third CONCACAF space if they can beat Trinidad and Tobago in their next match. 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.

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.

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.

Trump authorizes waiver to loosen shipping regulations for Puerto Rico
Even if the waiver helps speed cargo to the island, Puerto Rico is still struggling to move supplies around. That decision came only after days of public pressure from lawmakers - both Republicans and Democrats.

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 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.

The fourth-place nation advances to a home-and-home playoff next month against Australia or Syria.

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.

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