Costa Rica claims ticket to Russian Federation

Costa Rica equalised against Honduras in the *fifth minute* of injury time.

Kendall Waston scored in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time to clinch Costa Rica's second-straight World Cup berth and fifth overall.

A powerful header from Eddie Hernandez put Honduras in front in the 66th minute in the World Cup qualifier in San Jose, in a clash pushed back a day due to Tropical Storm Nate. The Vancouver Whitecaps defender outjumped Maynor Figueroa and Johnny Palacios to head the ball past Donis Escober to the goalkeeper's left from 8 yards.

Germany's Noah Awuku, who came on as a second half substitute capitalised on Costa Rica centre-back Fernan Faerron's mistake to score a late victor for his team.

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.

When it comes to separating the two sides locked on ten points, if Panama match Honduras' result only a five-goal swing in goal difference in favour of Los Catrachos can prevent Panama coming out on top. That point meant they were guaranteed a spot in their fifth World Cup.
