CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers
FINALES DE CONFERENCIA CON MUY DISTINTOS SABORES EN JUEGOS DE IDA
GUADALAJARA, Mexico – Panama’s inquiry request to FIFA as to whether Mexico fielded an illegal player in three World Cup CONCACAF Hexagonal qualification games has been quashed.
A statement released Thursday by the Panamanian federation indicated that FIFA confirmed Argentine-born forward Christian “Chaco” Giménez is and was free to play for Mexico, following a consultation it made Wednesday with soccer’s governing body.
Could Mexico be banished from next month’s World Cup playoff against New Zealand?
That is what Panama’s federation is hoping.
FEPAFUT has made an “official consultation” to FIFA about the possibility that Argentina-born forward Christian “Chaco” Giménez (pictured) may have been played illegally by Mexico in World Cup qualification, according to a tweet the federation made on Wednesday.
The "Group of Death" moniker may be a bit of a cliche at this point, but US men’s national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann thinks there may be a reason: multiple groups difficult enough to earn the distinction.
"The Hex" has been an incredible series chronicling the US national team's entire run through the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying in 2013, all the way from Panama to Seattle and beyond.
A huge tip of the cap to the folks at KICKTV for their amazing work.

Gabriel Torres shakes off Panama's World Cup heartbreak to deliver in the clutch for Colorado Rapids
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – If Oscar Pareja had stuck to his original plan, Gabriel Torres probably wouldn’t have started in the Colorado Rapids’ 3-2 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night.
CARSON, Calif. -- Landon Donovan watched intently as his US teammates rallied to beat Panama in their final World Cup qualifier and saved Mexico from elimination, but he doesn't believe El Tri would have done the same for the Yanks in same circumstances.
Houston Dynamo's Brad Davis hoping his two assists against Panama were enough to punch his ticket to Brazil
HOUSTON – When Brad Davis showed up to the Houston Dynamo locker room before his first training session after helping the USMNT to a win over Panama which saved Mexico’s World Cup hopes, he was greeted with trinkets and music courtesy of teammates intent on not letting his newfound hero status south of the border go unnoticed.
Now, Davis is hoping he left the same type of impression north of the border.
