In Central America, three two-leg clashes will be held with the winners all advancing to the final eight. Guatemala has been drawn with Costa Rica, Nicaragua will meet Honduras and Panama will play El Salvador.
Regional powerhouses United States, Mexico, and Canada have been given automatic places in the final eight tournaments which will qualify two sides for Tokyo 2020.
