FULL-TIME: COSTA RICA 2-1 TRINIDAD and TOBAGO
Los Ticos hold on for an important home win and take four points from six from this month's qualifiers in the Estadio Nacional in San Jose. Francisco Calvo and Bryan Ruiz had the goals for the home side, who move to double digits in the Hexagonal standings after six rounds of games. Though Kevin Molino scored for the Soca Warriors, a fifth defeat in the Hex makes their hopes of making Russia 2018 even more remote.

FULL-TIME: PANAMA 2-2 HONDURAS
There is no shortage of drama in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, and this match in Panama City had it all! Perez and Torres earned a point for the home side after Honduras twice took the lead through the Houston Dynamo pair of Quioto and Elis. Even referee Roberto Garcia Orozco played nearly ten minutes of stoppage time at the end of the game. The draw, however, is not the best of results for either side, at this stage of the Hexagonal.
