Canada beat Panama in a 4-1 comeback on Wednesday in Toronto and clinched third place in the octagonal final of the Concacaf World Cup qualifier in Qatar at the end of the third day.
With the victory, the Canadian team reached 10 points, and sent its rival to fourth place, with 8 integers, which gives place to the play-off.
Panama took the lead through Rolando Blackburn in the 5th minute and surprised the home team at BMO Field, but fate helped Canada when at 28 channel manager Michael Murillo scored an own goal to equalize the actions.
In the second period Canada was more offensive. At 66 he scored the second goal with Alphonso Davies, at 71 Tajon Buchanan converted the 3-1 and Jonathan David put the final 4-1 at 78.
On the seventh round of the Concacaf qualifiers, which will be played on November 12, Canada will host Costa Rica and Panama will visit Honduras. EFE (HN)
