Honduras 1 United States 1: Wood rescues late point for USA

That's when Kellyn Acosta stepped up and struck a handsome free kick that forced a top-shelf save, and Bobby Wood pounced on the ensuing loose ball and scored a goal that brought the USA team's qualifying hopes back to life with a 1-1 draw in Honduras.

Bobby Woods earned the United States a vital 1-1 draw with Honduras in World Cup qualifying on Tuesday.

"We have a lot of work to do but it keeps it in our hands now", USA striker Jordan Morris said after the game.

A second-half substitute up top, the job for Wood was straight forward - put the ball away. He headed it back to the center of the box, where striker Bobby Wood chested it to his right foot and toe-poked it into the back of the net.

That draw in San Pedro Sula allowed Panama to leapfrog into third place after a convincing home display against struggling Trinidad and Tobago.

After the upsetting 2-0 home loss to Costa Rica on Friday, USA is on the verge to end their world cup 2018 journey. A fourth-place team would be part of an inter-federation playoff and still have a chance to get a spot in the tournament next year. Tuesday's host nation remains in a scrap with the US for the third spot, with Mexico (17 points) and Costa Rica (14) in commanding position to secure Russian Federation spots.

Morris added: "I think it shows the mentality of our team, we knew that we had to get a result down here. The team deserves credit for getting a point". "The conditions were challenging for both teams". Arena and his players must figure out how to get up for each and every match or more disappointments are on the horizon, whether that be in the final stages of World Cup qualification or next summer in Russian Federation.

GFX Mexico vs. Costa Rica
Honduras 1 United States 1: Wood rescues late point for USA

The United States fell 2-0 at Red Bull Arena in New Jersey to Costa Rica in their previous matchup.

Omar Gonzalez and Matt Besler replaced Geoff Cameron and Tim Ream in central defense, and 35-year-old four-time World Cup veteran DaMarcus Beasley was at left back in place of Jorge Villafana.

Howard, the 38-year-old goalkeeper who started in the last two World Cups, cautioned against an all-out attacking approach for a USA team that will be missing forward Jozy Altidore because of his one-game suspension.

In goal, he again inserted Brad Guzan in place of Tim Howard, whose groin surgery last winter has made it hard for him to perform at a high level in matches scheduled close together, Arena said. The decision to start Guzan was necessary, but constantly using different center back combinations is counter-productive. Jorge Luis Pinto's side will be doing everything they can to avenge their 6-0 defeat by US back in March.

The U.S. was under siege for the next 10 minutes before the Americans regrouped and nearly got the equalizer in the 41st minute.

After plenty of close calls and great saves from both Mexico's Guillermo Ochoa and Costa Rica's Keylor Navas, Mexico stunned Costa Rica in the 42nd minute with a shot brilliantly saved by Navas, but then deflected over the line by teammate Cristian Gamboa for a spirit-sucking own goal.
