Mexico beat Panama to qualify for 2018 World Cup

USA vs. Costa Rica live stream: Watch World Cup qualifying online

With another stunning home loss, the United States' hopes of reaching an eighth straight World Cup berth are in peril.

The Americans have lost two home games in a World Cup cycle for the first time since 1957 and likely will need points on the road to qualify. A poor clearing kick from goalkeeper Tim Howard was headed back towards the U.S. territory and with Ream and Geoff Cameron out of position, Urena burst through the middle. The United States and Honduras both have eight points and 2-3-2 records, but the Americans hold the tiebreaker, a plus-1 goal difference to Honduras' minus-7. Panama remains a point behind after losing to Mexico, who booked a spot in Russian Federation with a 1-0 win.

Clint Dempsey started on the bench for the USA, with manager Bruce Arena electing to play Bobby Wood and Jozy Altidore up front while pairing Geoff Cameron and Tim Ream in the center of the defense.

Chasing a goal, the US opened the second half at a fever pitch, with Wood getting on the end of a Howard punt and almost beating Keylor Navas in the Costa Rica goal.

The Americans had a number of chances early in the second half, including a couple notable ones from Ream and Bobby Wood, but Costa Rica's defenders and Navas were up for every challenge.

Honduras saw out the match for their fourth win in a row against T&T ahead of a match with massive qualifying implications against the U.S. The teams are tied for third place with eight points, and only the top three Hexagonal teams qualify automatically for Russian Federation 2018. "Our backline made some mistakes, we didn't come up with any big saves, our attacking players weren't risky on the night".

Cameron's giveaway was the catalyst for Urena's second goal, but Arena defended the choice to pair Nagbe with Bradley, insisting that the bigger problems lay elsewhere. The U.S. attacking on set plays, normally a strong point, produced nearly nothing, and playmaker Christian Pulisic went down hard under the force of several fouls.

"Now the approach is we're going to go down there with the mentality to win the game", Bradley said.

USA captain Michael Bradley sounded a defiant note in the immediate aftermath of Friday's loss to Costa Rica, when his team were punished for sloppy defending by some expert counter-attacking by the 2014 World Cup quarter-finalists. But after a harrowing 2-0 defeat at home to Costa Rica, the USMNT is now staring down the barrel of more than just the usual CONCACAF slog and isolated tough results; they're staring down staying at home next June. The top three teams will qualify automatically, and the fourth-place team will go to a playoff against the fifth-place team in Asia-possibly Syria or Saudi Arabia at this point-for a spot in Russian Federation 2018.

"We'll move on. This is how you deal in competition sports". Altidore will miss the next match against Honduras on Tuesday. T&T is the worst team in the group and has lost six of seven Hex games.

Arena said he still feels as if the U.S.is in position to qualify for the World Cup. We didn't realize there would be a flyover but managed to snap this quick photo. We're not able to get this game back.
