Honduras' World Cup qualifier at Costa Rica has been postponed a day to Saturday because of the tropical storm lashing Central America.

Rodolfo Villalobos, the head of the Costa Rican federation, said Thursday the match will kick off at 4 p.m. local time (6 p.m. EDT) in the capital San Jose.

The game originally was scheduled to be played there on Friday night.

Costa Rica can qualify for next year's World Cup with a draw against Honduras.
