The United States men national team's 6-0 humiliation over Honduras may have been the much-talked about match-day three action of the Hexagonal, but there were two other interesting results in the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying round on Friday - Trinidad, and Tobago picked up a vital 1-0 home win result against Panama, as Kevin Molino's 37th minute strike secured the maximum points for the Socca Warriors in Port-of-Spain. The Minnesota United star-man played up to 80 minutes in the winning effort for his country and with that result the Socca Warriors now moves to the fifth-place in the Hex table, while Mexico outplayed Costa Rica in a 2-0 home win thanks to a Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and Nestor Araujo goals that edged out Costa Rica at the Estadio Azteca.

Elsewhere, Mexico spanked Costa Rica 2-0 at the Estadio Azteca in Cuernavaca as Mexico forward Javier Hernandez first half goal equaled Jared Borgetti all time leading scoring record of 46 goals, and later Nestor Araujo doubled the lead just before the halftime break.

With this home win, Los Ticos now moves to the summit of the Hex standings.
