First defeat for the young US team in the final World Cup qualification for the 2022 finals in Qatar. The USA have to admit defeat 0: 1 in Panama, but they claim second place in the table in the CONCACAF elimination.

The 31-year-old midfielder has over 100 international appearances and earns his living in the USA with Nashville SC in the MLS.
After their second qualifying victory and eight points after five games, Panama are tied with the USA in third place in the elimination. The Mexicans, who defeat Honduras 3-0 in their home game at the Aztec Stadium, are sovereign and still without defeat at the top of the table after the 5th matchday. Francisco Cordova (18th), Rogelio Funes Mori (76th) and Hirving Lozano (86th) score the goals for Mexico.
Canada only achieved a 0-0 draw at bottom of the table Jamaica (2 points), their fourth draw in their fifth game. With this, the Canadians claim fourth place in the table (7 points), which means a place in the intercontinental World Cup qualifying playoffs.
