Consider that our neighbors to the North could very well be leading Group A at the end of the evening. Canada will look to build on its 1-0 win over Honduras with a trip to El Salvador, which lost big at Mexico.

High-flying Cyle Larin and his Canadians will face a challenge from El Salvador, which picked up a 0-0 draw against them in Gold Cup this summer.

Speaking of El Tri, they have a chance to put Honduras to the sword after just two matches of the fourth round. Los Catrachos will be desperate to restore order after going down to a Cyle Larin goal, and there’s nothing more certain than Honduras getting all sorts of home-field advantage. Mexico hasn’t won at Honduras since 1993, going 5L-1D.
