|DID YOU KNOW?|
- Canada leads Honduras by two points. A draw or win would secure advancement to CONCACAF's final six for the Canadians, while the Hondurans need an outright victory.
- Honduras has only scored against Cuba in this current round, having been shut out by Canada and Group C leader Panama so far.
- Canada has not qualified for a World Cup since 1986. It has not reached the final round of qualifying, the Hexagonal, since 1998.
- Honduras qualified for the World Cup in 2010, its first appearance in the tournament since 1982.
Both sides are missing influential players ahead of this match. Honduras will be without starting goalkeeper Noel Valladares, and midfielders Wilson Palacios and Roger Espinoza. Canada has lost Josh Simpson and Dwayne De Rosario through injury, and target man Olivier Occean will be serving a red card suspension.
The match will be played at 2 p.m. local time (4 p.m. EDT), as it is required that the final group stage games are played simultaneously. Cuba vs. Panama must be played in the afternoon as the Cuban stadium does not have floodlights.
