Honduras booked their spot in the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarter-finals after a 1-0 win over El Salvador on Friday.

Jorge Claros struck late on at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, lifting Luis Fernando Suarez’s men to six points in Group B.

Honduras became just the second team to seal their place in the last eight after Panama secured progression on Thursday.

It took Honduras – ranked 55th in the world and 39 places above their opponents – until the second minute of additional time to find the breakthrough.

Eder Delgado tried an ambitious volley from 30 yards and his effort fell to Claros, who had just been kept onside.

The Hibernian midfielder’s first touch set up his chance and he composed himself before finishing high into the net, leaving Dagoberto Portillo helpless.

Earlier, Haiti recorded their first win of 2013 with a 2-0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago.

Jean-Eudes Maurice scored a brace for Israel Blake Cantero’s men as they moved to second in the group.

The forward opened the scoring on 16 minutes, putting away a rebound after Jan-Michael Williams could only parry Jeff Louis’ powerful long-range effort.

Maurice sealed the win with his second eight minutes after half-time, again capitalising on a rebound after Carlyle Mitchell’s clearance fell to him.
