Mexico advance

Javier Hernandez’ goal earned Mexico the victory in CONCACAF action. 

MIAMI – Mexico booked their place in CONCACAF’s final phase of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup with a 1-0 win over Costa Rica last night but the battle for the other five slots remains wide open.

A goal on the hour from forward Javier Hernandez was enough to secure a win at the Azteca Stadium for Mexico, who have won all four of their games and lead Group B with 12 points.

‘Chicharito’ headed home a deep cross from Jorge Torres Nilo to ensure Mexico maintained their 100 per cent record and gave the Manchester United striker his 26th goal in 41 national team appearances.

While Mexico are through with two games remaining in the third qualifying phase, El Salvador, who won 3-2 in Guyana, are on five points with Costa Rica on four and Guyana out of the running on one.

Panama lead Group C on nine points after a 2-0 victory over Canada with goals from Rolando Blackburn and Blas Perez.

The game was stopped after six minutes when stadium lighting went out, and when action resumed after a 15-minute stoppage Blackburn headed Panama in front in the 23rd minute and Perez doubled the lead 12 minutes into the second half.

Honduras and Canada trail Panama by two points, while Cuba
