They're one game away from a spot in the CONCACAF Champions League.
CONCACAF released a revised schedule and format for its 2022 World Cup qualifying tournament, but baseball's struggles illustrate the plan's inherent flaw.
CONCACAF is changing its World Cup qualifying hexagonal to an octagonal in response to the coronavirus pandemic and delaying the start until next June. The United States, Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica and Honduras receive byes directly to the octagonal, the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football announced Monday. The format also provides margin for slip-ups, though there were not enough to prevent the U.S. from missing the 2018 World Cup in Russia when it lost to Mexico and Costa Rica at home and at Trinidad and Tobago on the final night.
