Urena follows up his double against USA last Thursday with a crucial equaliser. It is a truly superb 20 metre volley from Los Ticos' man of the moment. Can Costa Rica find a winner and book their ticket to Russia?

An absolute disaster for Trinidad and Tobago approaching the hour mark as Mitchell can only force the ball over his own line allowing Panama to double their advantage. A loss here will see T&T all but mathematically eliminated from the race from Russia 2018.
