Start of the six teams tournament

After a month break CONCACAF is back. And what a way to start with the event (who from this round is also known as hexagonal) as right from the start the merciless draw combine the best teams together. Usually these super derby matches starts last in the schedule, but before that two pairs will open the tournament.

- Honduras - Panama. Tricky Panama, who is making Honduras lots of troubles in previous meetings, will have the same rival tonight which is in the best form to date. The team has re-grouped together and are playing matches of their lives. On the other hand Panama cannot tell what is to have a victory as visitors and with this play it surely does not look good for them. Since they are playing like that, Panama will try to return home with a (valuable) point. However, the hosts have other ideas and, regardless of the previous (sloppy) meetings, will show the power when needed the most.
- Trinidad and Tobago - Costa Rica. This pair may look like quite the opposite from the previous one. Until recently Trinidad and Tobago was playing with much confidence, but as time goes by that slowly fade away. In most meetings Costa Rica have beaten the opponent with (only) a goal difference so that is just the conclusion of how tough victories are. It looks like that they will steal this one away however, many efforts have to be from all 11 players.
- United States of America - Mexico. Twenty four hours ago it was in the South and 24 hours later it came to the North. The much spoken derby meets from leg one of the hexagonal event. These two maybe are the best teams in the CONCACAF zone, but that has to be proved on the pitch. Both are capable of playing entertaining matches, so we just have to order popcorn and the show is guaranteed. Currently USA is playing shaky, and are achieving mixed results. However, when it comes to opponent like this they can be shining. Their neighbors, Mexico always is playing good football and no matter who their rival is the team is winning (with some exceptions). This morning in particular it will be very difficult to play against skilled rival, but still they are slightly favorites to take first three points.
