[WORLD CUP 2014 QUALIFYING: Tuesday] Seven more berths in the World Cup 2014 finals -- including the third Concacaf berth -- will be decided Tuesday, bringing the number of teams with tickets to Brazil to 21. Here's a look at what's on the line.

CONCACAF (1 + 0.5). Honduras will qualify for the World Cup if it beats or ties Jamaica in Kingston or if Mexico loses to or ties Costa Rica or if Honduras loses to Jamaica and Mexico beats Costa Rica by a combination of less than three goals. Mexico will take third place and qualify for the World Cup if it beats Costa Rica away and Honduras loses at Jamaica by a combination of three or more goals.

Playoffs: Panama needs to beat the USA and have Mexico lose to Costa Rica to overtake Mexico for fourth place and a berth in the intercontinental playoffs against New Zealand in November.

EUROPE (4 + 4). Russia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, England and Spain all control their fate and will clinch the other European group titles with wins on Tuesday. Russia and Spain will also win their groups with ties.

Group F: Russia (21 points) will clinch with a win or tie at Azerbaijan. Portugal (18) will need a win over Luxembourg and a Russia loss and make up the seven goals it trails in goal difference.

Group G: Bosnia-Herzegovina and Greece are tied with 22 points, though BiH has an insurmountable edge in goal difference (plus-23 vs. plus-6). It will need to win at Lithuania, though, as Greece is expected to win at Liechtenstein.

Group H: England (19 points) will need to beat Poland at home as Ukraine (18) plays San Marino in its final game.

Group I: Spain (17 points) will clinch with a win or tie at home against Georgia in Albacete. France will need to beat Finland at the Stade de France and make up the three goals it trails Spain in goal difference (plus-9 vs. plus-6).

Playoffs: In addition, eight teams -- all but one second-place finisher -- will advance to the European playoffs in November from which four more teams will advance.

SOUTH AMERICA (2 + 0.5). Chile and Ecuador (both 25 points) will clinch the two remaining berths if they tie on Tuesday in Santiago. The winner will also advance with a victory.

To clinch fourth place, Uruguay (22) will need to beat Argentina at home, have either Chile and Ecuador lose and then make up the goal difference by which it trails Chile (plus-3 vs. minus-1) or Ecuador (plus-5 vs. minus-1).

Playoffs: Uruguay has clinched at least a berth in the intercontinental playoffs against Jordan.
