[WORLD CUP 2010 QUALIFYING]El Salvador joined the USA and Costa Rica in next year's Hexagonal, Concacaf's final round of World Cup 2010 qualifying, and Trinidad & Tobago pulled ahead in Group 1, but the two spots in Group 2 remained up in the air after Jamaica's 1-0 win over Honduras and Mexico's 2-2 tie at Canada.

Trinidad & Tobago, a 2-1 winner over the USA, got a big break when Cuba upset Guatemala, 2-1, for its first three points in Group 1. All the Soca Warriors need is to gain at least a point against Cuba in their final match at home or for Guatemala to fail to beat the United States in Colorado Nov. 19 to clinch second place behind the Americans.

Matias Vuoso's equalizer in the 64th minute gave Mexico a 2-2 tie at Canada and spared the Tri of another embarrassing loss. Jamaica stayed alive with a 1-0 win over Honduras in Kingston.

Mexico has a one-point lead over Honduras and a three-point lead over Jamaica with one game to play. Mexico travels to Honduras and Jamaica hosts Canada on the final day of qualifying.

Wins by the home teams would send Honduras to the Hexagonal. Mexico and Jamaica would be tied for second place. Mexico has the edge in the tiebreaker (+3 to -2).

El Salvador wrapped up second place in Group 3 with a 3-0 win over Suriname. Costa Rica remained perfect with a 2-0 win over Haiti.

Cuba 2 (Colome 45, Urgelles 86) Guatemala 1 (Pappa 80).
Trinidad & Tobago 2 (Latapy 62, Yorke 79) United States 1 (Davies 75).
Standings: USA 12 points; Trin. & Tobago 8; Guatemala 5; Cuba 3.
Group 2
Jamaica 1 (Shelton 16) Honduras 0.
Canada 2 (Gerba 12, Radzinski 49) Mexico 2 (own goal 34, Vuoso 64).

Group 3
Costa Rica 2 (Diaz 17, Nunez 90) Haiti 0.
El Salvador 3 (Zelaya 12, Quintanilla 26, own goal 80) Suriname 0.
