“I do not want to continue with the team,” Bengtson told Diez.hn. “I have talked with the team. … There are options, but nothing is certain.”

The dust is settling on a wild final night of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, and Mexico's skin-of-their-teeth survival – thanks to Graham Zusi's late heroics against Panama – has clearly been the big story of the past few days. Somehow, El Tri managed to finish fourth in the Hex despite winning just two of their 10 games, leading to some grumblings that Mexico did not deserve to survive.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico – US national team defender Michael Orozco claims that FC Dallas striker Blas Pérez and other Panama players asked him and his US teammates to slow down on Tuesday to make sure Los Canaleros secured the victory that would’ve sent them through to a playoff with New Zealand and leave Mexico out of the World Cup.
