Groups B and C in the Gold Cup are similarly tight with no team having guaranteed a spot in the knockout rounds with just one group game to go. It's worth the reminder that CONCACAF is seriously considering expanding the Gold Cup to 16 teams.

The Canadians had exited at the group stage of the past three tournaments after they failed to progress as co-hosts in 2015, but that changed in Texas on Friday. The standard sanction for fielding an ineligible player is to forfeit the game 3-0.

Malouda, who has played 80 times for France, including at two World Cups, wasn't allowed to feature for the French Guiana side despite being born in the capital city Cayenne. Against Honduras, the team named 37-year-old Florent Malouda - a former standout in France's Ligue 1 and for Chelsea FC in England - as captain.

In the second half, Baal was given his marching orders for throwing an elbow toward a Costa Rica player.

David Ramirez added the exclamation point for Costa Rica four minutes later.

"We knew it was a big environment that was surrounding the case of Malouda so we decided not to have him in the first match", said Karam before Friday's ruling. Honduras advances despite not scoring a single goal in three games.

The representatives of the maple leaf flag remain unbeaten in the tournament.

After seeing a shot of their own flash wide of the post, Honduras had an attempt cleared off the line by Michael Petrasso on the stroke of half-time.

There is a reason why French Guiana may have thought Malouda was eligible, however at the same time it seems obvious they have breached Gold Cup rules.

Saying that you can't use your hands in soccer is like saying that you can't kick the ball in football, even though most football teams employ two specialists devoted to kicking.

So why did French Guiana even include him on the roster, much less play him vs. Honduras (he didn't take the field vs. Canada)? While the show was the quickest sell-out in UFC history and came off without a hitch, many local politicians and physicians have remained unsupportive, with the British Columbia Medical Association going as far as petitioning for the sport to be banned across the country.

"I couldn't really believe it at the time", Davies said about his first goal.
