[COPA CENTROAMERICANA]Honduras, which will face the USA in the opening of the Hexagonal on Feb. 6, won its group at the 2013 Copa Centroamericana in Costa Rica despite tying both its games, 1-1. Costa Rica, the third Hexagonal entrant at the Copa Centroamericana along with Honduras and Panama, won the other group, while Belize finished second with a 2-1 win over Nicaragua to qualify for the Gold Cup for the first time.
