Trinidad and Tobago desperately needed to secure a victory in their CONCACAF World Cup hexagonal round qualifier against Honduras to move off the bottom of the six-team table and give themselves a boost in their quest to qualify for Russia 2018.

However, two quick first half goals from Alexander Lopez in the seventh minute, and Alberth Elis in the 16th on Friday (Sep 1), saw the visitors take a 2-0 lead at the half at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva.T&T earned a penalty in the 67th minute, which was successfully converted by Joevin Jones but it was not enough to prevent them from going under by a 2-1 margin.
