[VIDEO PICK: Panama-USA] Graham Zusi's goal in stoppage time (followed up by Aron Johannsson's goal almost immediately after that) stunned a nation. The U.S. comeback left Panama City's Estadio Rommel Fernandez in silence and Panama's Canaleros in tears after they were eliminated for the World Cup, for which they have never qualified, in stunning fashion.

Panamanian players broke down on the field and in the tunnel leading to their locker room after the game. In the post-game press conference, Panama coach Julio Dely Valdes spent more than five minutes apologizing, saying he took full responsibility for the loss.

When the press conference was opened to questions, a journalist thanked Dely Valdes for everything he had done and the assembled journalists broke out in applause.

    Panamanian reactions are so sad. My heart goes out to them. Would much rather have seen Panama in the World Cup as opposed to Mexico. Especially after the words of Javier Hernandez and their national team head coach. Javier basically stated the US had nothing to do with their remaining hope for a World Cup birth and that God gave them this chance. God has nothing to do with it and could care less about the World Cup. lol Zusi and the other 10 US players are who Chicharito and Mexico should be grateful towards. De nada :-)

    James, maybe God pushed the USMNT to save the Mexicans because he was frustrated at them not knowing how to save themselves.
