[HEXAGONAL]Who needs David Suazo when you have Carlo Costly and Carlos Pavon? Suazo, arguably the best Concacaf striker playing in Europe, was again missing from the Honduras lineup for its match against Costa Rica Wednesday in San Pedro Sula, but Costly, El Gigantón, and the well-traveled Pavon (13 clubs in seven countries) combined for three goals in a 4-0 win over the Ticos that moved the Bicolor into second place ahead of the USA on goal difference.

Costly, who scored twice in the 3-1 home win over Mexico in April, scored two more goals to give him five goals, the most in the Hexagonal. Pavon has four goals, tied with American Jozy Altidore for second place in the Hexagonal.

Meanwhile, Suazo, who returned to Inter Milan after a season on loan to Benfica in Portugal, hasn't played for the Catrachos since the Hexagonal opener, a 2-0 loss at Costa Rica.

The 27-year-old Costly, dubbed the Giant by the Honduran faithful, is the son of Anthony Costly, a star on the 1982 Honduran World Cup. He moved with his mother to Mexico when he was 14 but has bounced around pro clubs in Mexico, Honduras, England and Poland.

Pavon is on his fifth spell at Honduran club Real Espana in a career that has taken him to Mexico (Toluca, San Luis, Correcaminos, Necaxa twice, Celaya, Morelia twice and Cruz Azul), Spain (Real Valladolid), Italy (Udinese), Colombia (Deportivo Cali), Guatemala (Communicaciones) and the United States (Los Angeles Galaxy).
