Jamaica draws Mexico 0-0 in WCup qualifying
Mexico lost a 19-game winning streak at Azteca Stadium with a
0-0 draw against Jamaica on Wednesday night in its first match of
the final round of World Cup qualifying.
The Mexicans are considered one of the favorites to qualify for
Brazil 2014 from the North and Central American and Caribbean
region. But the Jamaicans battled them to their first tie at Azteca
since Nov. 9, 1997, when they played to a 3-3 draw against Costa
Honduras leads the final six-team group with three points, while
Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica and Jamaica share second with one point
apiece. The United States is last with no points after losing 2-1
to Honduras earlier Wednesday.
The top three teams earn automatic World Cup berths.
