[WORLD CUP 2010 QUALIFYING] Dwayne Stanford's goal in the 69th minute gave Barbados a 1-0 win over Dominica and set up a date with the USA in June in a home-and-home series in 2010 World Cup qualifying.

Barbados technical adviser Keith Grifffith threatened to quit if the favored Bajans did not advance. Four foreign-based players played against Dominica: Emmerson Boyce (Wigan), Jonathan Forte (Scunthorpe) and Jonathan Nurse (Dagenham & Redbridge) from England and goalie Alvin "Banana" Rouse (Galway United) from Ireland.

Former MLS player Petter Villegas scored in the 97th minute to give Puerto Rico a 1-0 win over the Dominican Republic and advance to the second round. El Salvador beat Anguilla, 4-0, before 22,670 fans in Washington to win, 16-0, on aggregate. Other teams to advance in the Concacaf zone were Suriname, Grenada, Netherlands Antilles, St. Lucia, Belize and Antigua & Barbuda.

In Asian qualifying, powerhouses Japan, Iraq and Saudi Arabia all suffered surprise defeats on Matchday 2 of the semifinal round.

Japan fell at Bahrain, 1-0, on Aala Hubail's 77th-minute strike. Saudi Arabia was crushed by Uzbekistan, 3-0, while slumping Asian champion Iraq lost to Qatar, 2-0, and fell into last place in its group.
