Honduras will play the United States on September 10 in a home game in San Pedro Sula, while El Salvador will face Mexico in Mexico City.
Honduras dropped its last qualifier 1-0 to Mexico on a penalty kick by Cuauhtemoc Blanco. That loss snapped a three-game winning streak for Los Catrachos, who had outscored their opponents 9-1 over that stretch, including a 4-0 rout of Costa Rica.
Veteran Amado Guevara, who plays for Major League Soccer’s Toronto FC , is the all- time caps leader for Honduras with 127, and shown he still has spark, scoring in Los Catrachos 4-1 win over Trinidad and Tobago.
El Salvador showed fine form in their last qualifier, a 1-0 win over Costa Rica which kept their qualifying hopes alive. Rudis Corrales scored the game’s only goal. The 29-year old leads El Salvador with eight goals in qualifying, but his game winner against the Ticos was his first since November 19, 2008, in a 3-1 loss to Costa Rica.
