FIFA – Canada remains unstoppable in CONCACAF



CONCACAF: Canada remains undefeated en route to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, but is closely followed by the United States and Mexico. Panamá and Costa Rica gouged out their eyes for the playoff ticket and we will tell you about it on PlayOn99 News.

Canada was able to keep its first FIFA commitment of this date without the star Alphonso Davies, of Bayern Munich, with a 2-0 victory against Honduras as a visitor.

The North American team, excited about qualifying for its second World Cup after Mexico 1986, took the lead by a goal against Denil Maldonado 10 minutes into the game.

The definitive advantage was decreed by Jonathan David, Alphonso’s brother and a Lille player, when he received an excellent assist from Liam Fraser, lowered the ball with his chest and finished over the goalkeeper.

The striker who plays in Ligue 1 reached four goals in these Concacaf Qualifiers for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and was positioned second in the scorers table, only behind his teammate, Cyle Larin.

Canada’s victory gave them peace of mind and security at the top of the standings, since the other chasing teams won their games, and reached 9 games without losing with 4 consecutive victories scoring nine goals and conceding only one, although the next date will have a litmus test before its neighbors, the United States.

Honduras lives a parallel reality as the last classified in the octagonal, with just three points in nine games, and is just two days away from saying goodbye to the mathematical chances of qualifying.

Mexico and the United States squeeze from below

Among the favorites to qualify, the team that suffered the most to prevail was Mexico, which needed a comeback to beat Jamaica 2-1 at the National Stadium in Kingston.

The Reggae Boyz had been left with ten players due to the expulsion of Damion Lowe for a direct red card at the end of the first half, but on the way back from the locker room they took the lead thanks to a goal from Daniel Johnson.

Mexico was able to turn the result around in an agonizing way over the last ten minutes of the game: first Henry Martin and then Alexis Vega in a two-minute barrage.

After two straight defeats, Mexico took a breather before receiving Costa Rica on Sunday in the second of the three games of this Qualifying window and was saved from a defeat that would have seriously complicated their plans to travel to Qatar 2022.

The United States barely made good with a 1-0 win over El Salvador in the cold Ohio thanks to a goal from Fulham winger Antonee Robinson, who took advantage of one of El Salvador’s rare defensive lapses to score just before game time.

The North Americans were one point behind the leader, Canada, a rival that they will face on the next date with the fixed idea of ​​winning the unbeaten record.

At the close of the day, Costa Rica took a giant step to recover qualification options by beating Panama by the minimum at the National Stadium in San José.

The Ticos took the three points thanks to veteran Bryan Ruiz with a goal in the 65th minute and, although Panama is still in the playoff zone three points from the direct ticket to Qatar 2022, Costa Rica came within two points of its rival in turn to stay alive in the rankings.
