Tejada breaks Canadians' hearts

MOST COMMENTED

[CANADA-PANAMA] Luis Tejada's goal in stoppage time following a wild goalmouth scramble earned Panama a 1-1 tie with Canada and gave the Canaleros the Group C title at the Gold Cup. The result would eliminate Canada when Guadeloupe failed to beat the USA in the second game of the Tuesday doubleheader at Livestrong Sporting Park.

Dwayne De Rosario's penalty kick appeared to have ensured that Canada joined Panama in the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup and meant that the USA would exit the Gold Cup if it lost to Guadeloupe.

But Tejada's goal eliminated Canada as the third-place team with the worst record. The goal came after Canada keeper Milan Borjan let Blas Perez's shot go through his legs.

The big winner on the tying goal was El Salvador, which edged out Canada on goal difference (7-7 vs. 2-3) for the second third-place berth along with the berth Guatemala, third in Group B, clinched. The result also eased the pressure on the USA, which avoided a possible showdown with Mexico in the quarterfinals in case of a tie.
