[WORLD CUP 2010 QUALIFYING] Five of the six berths in next year's Hexagonal could be decided as early as the next game of World Cup 2010 qualifying in the Concacaf zone.

USA, Mexico and Costa Rica remained perfect, while Honduras and El Salvador have also pulled away.

Only second place in Group A appears to be up for grabs. Guatemala moved into a tie with Trinidad & Tobago thanks to its 4-1 win over Cuba in which Toronto FC's Carlos Ruiz scored twice.

Following Mexico's 2-1 win over Canada, the Chicago Fire's Cuauhtemoc Blanco, who came on in the 89th minute after not playing against Honduras and Jamaica, announced his retirement from international play.

Toronto FC's Amado Guevara scored the insurance goal for Honduras in its 2-0 win over Jamaica. Former FC Dallas and Chivas USA player Ramon Nunez opened the scoring for the Catrachos.

USA 3 (Bradley 10, Dempsey 18, Ching 57) Trinidad & Tobago 0.
