The sport is seriously affected worldwide due to the coronavirus pandemic and many games or events have had to be suspended or canceled. With regard to football, one of the last determinations of FIFA was to cancel all the national team matches during the month of June, which caused that they did not play defining matches in CONCACAF that would ultimately define the guests to the Final Hexagonal .
According to the version of the journalist Alexis Martín-Tamayo, better known as “Míster Chip”, the FIFA decision may cause the Final Hexagonal to be automatically defined, so the six teams that would enter this phase would be: Mexico, the United States, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Honduras and El Salvador.
For now this is just one of many scenarios that could be presented in the future, however, FIFA and CONCACAF are analyzing what determination to make in this regard and there may soon be news about it. Today there is nothing official and the teams involved are waiting for the actions that will be taken.RELATED

Panama would be out of the Hexagonal
If the proposed scenario were to become official, teams such as Canada, Panama, Guatemala, Curaçao and Trinidad and Tobago would be out of all aspiration to go to the Qatar World Cup in 2022. However, these combined would be top seed along with Antigua and Barbuda, Saint Kitts and Nevis and Haiti in an alternative tie to determine which team will go to a playoff against fourth place in the CONCACAF Hexagonal Final. In turn, the winner of this series will play against fifth place in CONMEBOL to compete for a ticket to the next World Cup.
