Costa Rica clinch World Cup spot despite draw

Weather Report on Nate Storm

"Given the hard situation that our country is suffering from due to the tropical storm, the Costa Rican federation together with the government and authorities from FIFA have made a decision to reschedule the qualifier game against Honduras for next Saturday at 4 p.m. local time", the FCF said in a statement. Right winger Josue Abarca did well to win the ball from Germany's goalkeeper Luca Plogmann and set up Jose Alfaro but the striker shot over, much to the dismay of coach Breansse Camacho.At the other end, Germany had a similar opportunity but Jan Boller disappointed with his effort.

Here's how the Americans can seal a top-three finish on Wednesday and officially make travel plans for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation next summer.

Costa Rica has 16 points and is second in the final round of qualifying in the CONCACAF region behind Mexico, which has 21 points and clinched last month. Panama and Honduras have 10 points each.

Goal difference has become key: the U.S. are plus-five, Panama minus-two and Honduras minus-seven meaning the Americans should only need a draw to go through.

Netflix to raise its prices
The prices are already in effect for new sign-ups and will be rolling out to existing customers later this month, Netflix said . The price of the basic plan, which costs $7.99 monthly and delivers standard definition video to one screen, remains the same.

A resounding 4-0 win over Panama on Friday did wonders for the U.S. Men's National Team in its pursuit of the country's eighth straight World Cup appearance.

As such, defeat for United States of America and Los Canaleros dropping points is Honduras' most likely chance of automatically making it three World Cup finals in a row. Up to that point, the fans and the players were resigned to have to wait to Tuesday, in the game against Panama, to officially qualify.

The Americans would be eliminated only if they lose and Panama and Honduras both win. They were quarter-finalists in Brazil in 2014 and reached the knockout stage in Italy in 1990.
