Guatemala and Antigua & Barbuda currently sit tied at the bottom of Group A, and a result for either could go a long way to moving them up with leaders U.S. and Jamaica, who battle each other on the same dates. Antigua and Barbuda fell to the U.S. in the first game of the fourth round of qualifying, dropping a 3-1 decision to the Yanks in Tampa. They played to a scoreless tie against Jamaica four days later. Guatemala, meanwhile also got off to a less than auspicious start, falling 2-1 to Jamaica, before playing to a 1-1 tie at home against the Americans, coming back on a late equalizer by Chicago Fire midfielder Marco Pappa. The first mach of the home-and-home series on September 7 takes place at Estadio Nacional Mateo Flores (Guatemala City), while the return match four days later will be played at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium (North Sound).
El Salvador find themselves in the difficult spot of being third in Group B behind Mexico and Costa Rica with one point, but since the two leaders play each other over the same dates, they could gain some ground by picking up maximum points over winless Guyana. El Salvador lost the opening match of qualifying 2-1 to Mexico, then rebounded to take a point against Costa Rica, coming back from a two- goal deficit to earn a 2-2 tie. The first match of the home-and-home series takes place at Estadio Cuscatlán (San Salvador), while the return match is at Providence Stadium (Providence).
After their Olympic team advanced to the quarterfinals before falling to Brazil, the full Honduras National Team is looking to duplicate some of that success in the World Cup Qualifiers. Current New England Revolution forward Jerry Bengtson, who was the fourth leading scorer in the Olympics with three goals, is expected to play a key role in his country’s WCQ campaign. Currently sitting third in Group C, the Hondurans are coming off a tough 2-0 loss to group leaders Panama. They earlier had earned a point with 0-0 draw against Canada. Dark horse and little known Cuba is coming off back-to- back losses to Panama and Canada, both by 1-0 scores. The series open in Estadio Pedro Marrero (Havana) with the return match at Estadio Olímpico Metropolitano (San Pedro Sula).
Live on both cable and satellite pay-per-view, the matches will be available on iN Demand, DIRECTV, DISH Network and Avail-TVN for a suggested retail price of only $29.95. The games will be available with both English and Spanish commentary.
