AndyHurtado (Reuters) 

Ever heard of Andy Furtado? Chances are you probably haven't, but a lot more people know who the Costa Rican striker is now after he scored two goals to help'Los Ticos' knock off Honduras, 2-0, in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying on Wednesday.

The victory leaves Costa Rica tied with the United States atop the CONCACAF Hexagonal standings. Honduras, considered a favorite to qualify, now sits in last place in the six-team group, alongside Mexico.

El Salvador scored a pair of late goals to salvage a 2-2 tie vs. Trinidad & Tobagoon Wednesday. Osael Romero scored in the 87th and the 90th minute to help the Salvadoreans salvage a point from their home match.

The Hexagonal continues on March 28th with the following three matches:

  • Honduras at Trinidad & Tobago

  • Costa Rica at Mexico

  • United States at El Salvador

It is still early, but Mexico finds itself in what some might consider a must-win match against a Costa Rica side that is riding high and has actually won at Azteca before.

What do you think of the next group of matches? Are you considering making the trip to El Salvador? Who do you see as the second-best team in the group (after the United States)?
