Waston has three global goals, including a header off a Christian Bolanos' 68th-minute corner kick on March 28 that gave Costa Rica a 1-1 draw at Honduras.

In the remaining fixtures of the round, Honduras host Mexico on Tuesday, while Costa Rica go to Panama and the United States travel to bottom side Trinidad and Tobago.

Costa Rica is officially going to the 2018 World Cup.

Panama or Honduras loom as the most likely opponents for Australia should the Socceroos progress in their World Cup playoff tie against Syria.

Spain had taken the lead in the 5th minute through an own goal by Brazil's Wesley. Bryan Ruiz flicked the ball ahead to Rodney Wallace who, marked by Bryan Acosta and Emilio Izaguirre, played it back to Ruiz.

Western Michigan and Buffalo break FBS scoring record in 7OT thriller
But Donnie surely appreciates the unparalleled support from his sister, and Western Michigan still won the game... It did exactly that, with a 12-yard Jarvion Franklin touchdown run ending the marathon game in the seventh OT.

A lethargic Costa Rica looked as if they were playing for a draw from the outset of a match held over from Friday due to torrential rain in the capital city.

Costa Rica (16 points) will finish second to Mexico (21), with those as the only two CONCACAF sides to have booked their tickets to Russian Federation. 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.

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.

In addition, the U.S. could qualify with a loss if Panama and Honduras both fail to win on Tuesday.
