GOAL United States! Unbelievable! Mexico are bailed out a second time by the US, as Zusi makes it 2-2 in injury time.— FOX Soccer (@FOXSoccer) October 16, 2013
Gol de USA!— Xoel Cárdenas (@XoelCardenas) October 16, 2013
GOAL USA!!! Davis with a peach of a ball to Zusi, who converted to equalize at deuces with just seconds remaining. As it stands Mexico are still alive.
4 mins added for Mexico to score a goal— Xoel Cárdenas (@XoelCardenas) October 16, 2013
PANAMA GOAL--Tejada! And Panama has life. As it stands, Mexico is out.— Grant Wahl (@GrantWahl) October 16, 2013
Panama playing with a lot of desperation right now. Actually exciting to watch— Phil Shore (@PShore15) October 16, 2013
Goals! Goals! Goals! One in each match, in fact. Orozco pulls the United States level in Panama following a corner; Austin pulls Jamaica level with Honduras; Costa Rica take the lead at home to Mexico through Saborio!
Chicharito suspended on yellows for 1st leg vs New Zealand--might be addition by subtraction at this point.— Grant Wahl (@GrantWahl) October 16, 2013
Mexico will breathe a sigh of relief as Ruiz departs. His mobility caused problems during the first half. Saborio a threat, though.— Kyle McCarthy (@kylejmccarthy) October 16, 2013
