CONCACAF 2022 World Cup Qualifying: Schedule, standings, TV for soccer Octagonal



We’re at the midway point of qualifying and the USA is back at the top of the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying standings. After the latest 2-0 victory over Mexico in Ohio, the Americans are now in the driver’s seat in the chase for one of the top three spots inย the table which comes with aย direct ticketย to the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Canada and Panama kept up the chase behind the two CONCACAF powers. Both won their matches in Matchday 7 with the Canadians beating the Ticos at home, and Panama pulling off the result of the matchday, coming back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 on the road in Honduras.

Those results leave the other half of the table in precarious position. A group of three teams — Costa Rica, Jamaica, El Salvador — are now five points behind Panama for fourth place. The fourth-place team will advance to an intercontinental play-in series to the World Cup.

How CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying works

Eight nations from the CONCACAF region (North America, Central America and the Caribbean) are competing for three automatic berths to the 2022 Qatar World Cup in the final “octagonal” qualifying round.

The eight countries are facing offย in a round-robin format with each team playing the other sevenย opponents once at home and once on the road. The 14 total matches for each national teamย began in September 2021 and will wrap up in March 2022.ย 

The top three finishers will earn automatic berths to Qatar,ย while the fourth-place team will head to an intercontinental playoff with a final ticket to Qatar on the line. Here are the standings tiebreakers for teams even on points:

  1. Goal difference in all group matches
  2. Most goals scored in all group matches
  3. Most points obtained from group matches between teams concerned
  4. Goal difference from group matches between teams concerned
  5. Most goals scored in group matches between teams concerned
  6. Goals scored away from home (if two teams tied)
  7. Discipline points (based on yellow/red cards)
  8. Drawing of lots by FIFA

The Qatar World Cup will be played from Nov. 21 to Dec. 18, 2022.ย ย
