Qualified Panama defeated Canada 1-0 on Wednesday in the last date of the eight-way CONCACAF qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup, a result that did not prevent North America from finishing first in the preliminary round.
The goal of the match, which was held at the Rommel Fernandez Stadium, in Panama City, Gabriel Torres (49) scored in a duel on very few occasions where the Panamanians showed more momentum than their opponent, were very inaccurate and slow at times.

The United States also qualified for the World Cup by occupying third place with 25 points, similar to Costa Rica, which ranked fourth and will go to the play-off against New Zealand.
Panama with 21 points, Jamaica with 11, El Salvador with 10 and Honduras with 4 points were eliminated from the race in the World Cup.
