WCQ: Concacaf semifinal round two preview

Panama, which opened World Cup 2018 qualifying with a 2-0 win at Jamaica, can consolidate its position with a win on Tuesday when it hosts Costa Rica, which will be without the Montreal Impact's Johan Venegas, Oscar Duarte and Celso Borges, who were all injured in the 1-0 win over Haiti.

The Canaleros' win over Jamaica ended a 12-game winless streak, dating back to March. (They finished third at the Gold Cup without winning the ground.)

Former LA Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo has rejoined Panama, which started Jose Calderon against Jamaica.

Canada looks to build on its 1-0 win over Honduras when it plays at El Salvador, which is dealing with a player strike. Just 2,000 tickets have been sold for the game at San Salvador's Estadio Cuscatlan.

The loss to Canada has put the pressure on Honduras, which hosts Mexico in San Pedro Sula, where it has not lost to El Tri since 1965.
