Mexico vs. USA: The World Cup Qualifying Game to Watch!

Not since at least 1993 could Colombians pride themselves on having such a good team. After comfortably beating Bolivia at home, the squad, managed by José Pékerman, visits "La Vinotinto," which recently lost an away game to Argentina. The Venezuelan defense will have to keep its eyes and legs on Radamel Falcao and Juan Guillermo Cuadrado, while the Colombians will keep an eye on veteran midfielder Juan Arango, a maestro of free kicks, who has already scored three times against them.

Ecuador vs. Paraguay (4:55 p.m. ET on beIN SPORT)

The Ecuadorian team hasn't lost a single game on their home turf. Currently third on the CONMEBOL standings with 17 points, Ecuador has a fit and strong squad with explosive players like Manchester United's Antonio Valencia. They play Paraguay, the last team in the standings with a mere eight points. The Guaraníes have no room for mistakes, as a loss could mean an end to their World Cup hopes.

Costa Rica vs. Jamaica (9:55 p.m. ET on beIN SPORT)

After losing to the U.S. in a controversial "blizzard bowl" last Friday, the Ticos must defeat Jamaica during their first home game in the CONCACAF final group stage. Costa Rica's manager, Jorge Luis Pinto, will probably play with a very offensive lineup, so watch out for striker Joel Campbell from Betis, who might be a starter this time.

Panamá vs. Honduras (9:55 p.m. ET on beIN SPORT)

Panamá and Honduras recently survived two complicated games against Jamaica and Mexico, respectively. The Panamanians drew 1-1 against the Reggae Boys in Kingston, while the Hondurans, who are quickly becoming the favorites in the CONCACAF region, managed to turn around a 0-2 deficit against Mexico, squeaking out an important draw at home. Panama is pressured to win at home, while Honduras hopes to maintain the top spot in the CONCACAF standings. Keep an eye on Carlos Costly, a Honduran forward from the Greek Superleague, who scored against Mexico in the previous game.
