Two matchdays into the semifinal round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying for the 2018 tournament in Russia, and the US and Canada are both on track to advance to the hexagonal round.
That's according to ESPN's Soccer Power Index, which calculated the percentage chance of each team moving to the Hexagonal, CONCACAF's final round of qualifying.

The message? So far, so good, especially for Canada, who have not reached the Hexagonal since the 1998 qualifying cycle.
