[WORLD CUP 2010 QUALIFYING]Five of the six berths in next year's Hexagonal could be determined with two games to spare. Saturday's World Cup qualifiers could make most of the remaining games in the Concacaf zone moot.

GROUP 1
Guatemala vs. Trinidad & Tobago (first game: 1-1)
USA vs. Cuba (first game: USA 1-0)
Standings:USA 9 points; Trinidad & Tobago, Guatemala 4; Cuba 0.

The USA will qualify with a win over Cuba, while the winner of the Guatemala-Trinidad & Tobago will move into second place.

The Soca Warriors have brought back Dwight Yorke (who missed last month's game against the USA) and Russell Latapy, national team veterans dating back to the Italia '90 qualifying campaign, for one last hurrah.

GROUP 2
Jamaica vs. Mexico
(first game: Mexico 3-0)
Honduras vs. Canada (first game: Honduras 2-1)
Standings:Mexico 9 points; Honduras 6; Canada 1, Jamaica 1.

Theodore Whitmorewill be in charge for Jamaica as interim coach after BrazilianRene Simoes was fired last month. Former England international John Barnes will take charge of the Reggae Boyz in November but it could be too late by then.

Mexico will also move on with a win or a tie (if Canada doesn't win). Honduras will also advance with a win and Jamaica toe or loss.

Canada, meanwhile is in turmoil. Jim Brennan announced Tuesday he won't play for the national team as long as Dale Mitchellis the coach.

GROUP 3
Haiti vs. El Salvador
(first game: El Salvador 5-0)
Suriname vs. Costa Rica (first game: Costa Rica 7-0)
Standings: Costa Rica 9 points; El Salvador 6; Haiti, Suriname 1.

Costa Rica and El Salvador  both won their matches against Haiti and Suriname quite easily. The Ticos will clinch a berth in the final round of qualifying with a win or tie, while El Salvador will advance with a tie at Haiti.
