The El Salvador team no longer even has a chance of going to the play-offs, with ten points gained in the standings for the final phase. Even so, it can “ruin” the lives of rivals, who are fighting for the chance to keep dreaming of a place in the next World Cup.
Coach Hugo Perez will have two news for his team this Sunday. Domínguez will become a swinger in goal, replacing Carabantes. Roldán must return to his place in the attack as a replacement for Lariín. The rest of the squad is unlikely to change from the draw with Jamaica.
Five games without losing and Costa Rica has a strong chance of going to the Cup, both for the direct place and for the repechage. With 18 points, the Ticos must win the last two games and encourage Mexico or the United States to qualify directly for Qatar.
Some of the changes Luis Fernando Suárez made against Canada could follow, such as Matarrita’s presence on the left of defence. Still, the squad that faced the Canadians in the last round should be the Costa Rican coach’s favourite.
