KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Honduras grabbed the final automatic qualifying spot from the CONCACAF region for next year’s World Cup by drawing 2-2 at Jamaica on Tuesday.

Honduras went into the game knowing a draw would be enough to stay ahead of fourth-placed Mexico and they got the ideal start when Carlo Costly scored in the first minute, only for Je-Vaughn Watson to equalize for Jamaica two minutes later.

Maynor Figueroa restored Honduras’ lead in the 33rd before Jamaica drew level again with Rodolph Austin’s penalty in the 59th.
