The last places are still to be disputed and two direct tickets will come today from the CONCACAF region, where everything points to the USMNT and Mexico taking two places to complete the 29 teams that will be in the draw on Friday for the World Cup and only three teams will be left to define all the groups for the World Cup in Qatar.
