Trinidad and Tobago, dubbed the Soca Warriors, will have to battle to their wits ends. They already have one victory gained over Panama at home in the June 8 clash to follow up on their nil-nil draw against Costa Rica.

Group leader Mexico, on 13 points, plays Costa Rica, third on the League table with seven points. Guatemala, like T&T also on four points, hosts last placed Panama on two points.

The other three qualifying rounds see Trinidad and Tobago hosting Guatemala on September 3, while Panama entertains Costa Rica that same day.

The United States hosts Mexico in that day’s encounter.

Trinidad and Tobago will be away to Costa Rica in their penultimate showdown September 7 while Mexico will be at home to Panama. Guatemala will try to gain some points when they host Mexico that day.

The final round will see T&T in Panama, Mexico on home turf against Guatemala, and Costa Rica entertains the USA.

The fourth place team in the group still has the opportunity to advance to Germany, but they will have to overcome the Oceania Group.
