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

Rica.

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.
