INTERNATIONAL PREVIEW: CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying Matchday 2

After a wild day of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup last Friday that resulted in three road victories, Match Day 2 is sure to provide much of the same drama across the slate of games tonight. The United States, Trinidad and Tobago and Honduras were all handed losses despite playing on home turf, giving Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama an early edge in Hex play.
Quakes midfielder Cordell Cato and Trinidad are currently in last place with a -2 goal differential after their 2-0 loss to Costa Rica, although they can right the ship quickly against Honduras in San Pedro Sula. Kickoff is at 2:05 p.m. PT on Tuesday. 
 
The Americans are looking to rebound from a 2-1 loss at the hands of Mexico by earning all three points Tuesday against Costa Rica. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:05 p.m. PT on beIN Sports and NBC Universo.
 
Panama, led by Earthquakes midfielders Anibal Godoy and Alberto Quintero, had a fast start to the Hex, defeating Honduras 1-0 on Friday. The #Panamaniacs now set their sights on Mexico at the friendly confines of Estadio Rommel Fernandez in Panama City. The match begins Tuesday night at 6:05 p.m. PT.
