Costa Rica is the fifth time I qualified for the world Cup

Map U.S. National Hurricane Center

Costa Rica qualified for the 2018 World Cup finals late on Saturday after Kendall Waston's goal in the fifth minute of stoppage time in San Jose gave them a 1-1 draw against Honduras and the point they needed to seal their spot in Russian Federation.

In the fifth of a minimum six minutes of stoppage time, a long ball from deep in Costa Rica's end following a throw-in was headed from about 23 yards out by Hernandez.

Tropical Storm Nate has brought heavy rains to Costa Rica, causing the government to declare a state of emergency and close schools.

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.

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.

The date to accomplish a meeting by the end of the calendar year is December 30 at UFC 219 in Las Vegas. Addressing McGregor he added: "You're in check and I'm great at chess".

The United States have 12 points and are favourites to take the third automatic spot but Panama and Honduras, both on 10, are still in with a chance. A seven- and 12-goal lead on each side means a U.S. draw would technically give hope to the chasing pair, but only a slim one.

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.

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

The Socceroos will be trying to advance to the next stage of the playoffs when they play Syria in Sydney on Tuesday night. They beat Greece on penalty kicks to reach the quarterfinals, where they lost to the Netherlands in a shootout.
