Hunting a third successive World Cup appearance, Honduras went into the penultimate round in fifth and desperate for points to move into the play-off spot, or even a top-three automatic qualifying position.

The dramatic late goal means the United States likely needs at most a draw at Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday night to qualify for its eighth straight World Cup berth.

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.

Ruiz played the ball from his left foot to his right to fake his way past Acosta, dribbled past Izaguirre and crossed to Waston. But the schedule is not easy - after Costa Rica play with Mexico on a visit.

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.

Honduras is still in the hunt for a top-four finish, now fifth with nine points, just behind on goal differential to the United States in fourth.

Goal difference has become key: the U.S. are plus-five, Panama minus-two and Honduras minus-seven meaning the Americans should only need a draw to go through.

The US have 12 points following their 4-0 win Friday over Panama and would qualify with a win or draw in Trinidad on the final night of the qualifiers.

As such, defeat for United States of America and Los Canaleros dropping points is Honduras' most likely chance of automatically making it three World Cup finals in a row.

The fourth-place nation advances to a home-and-home playoff next month against Australia or Syria. They were quarter-finalists in Brazil in 2014 and reached the knockout stage in Italy in 1990.
