SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- Mexico will play New Zealand for a spot in next years World C

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- Mexico will play New Zealand for a spot in next years World Cup despite losing 2-1 at Costa Rica on Tuesday night. George Kittle Jersey . The Mexicans advanced to the home-and-home series when the United States rallied with two late goals to win at Panama. That kept Mexico in fourth place at the conclusion of the CONCACAF final qualifying round with only 11 points, three ahead of Panama, which would have advanced by holding off the Americans. Mexico will host the first leg on Nov. 13 or 14 and play at New Zealand on Nov. 20. The Mexicans have made every World Cup since they were disqualified from the 1990 tournament for using an overage player at a youth event, but they sure cut it close this time. Goals by Brian Ruiz in the first half and Alvaro Saborio in the second gave Costa Rica the win. The Ticos already had qualified for Brazil 2014 and wound up second to the United States in the round. Oribe Peralta scored in the 29th minute for Mexico, which won only two games in the 10-game finals. One of those victories came last Friday night against Panama in the first match for new coach Victor Manuel Vucetich, and that was the difference for El Tri. "We thought that we were out," Peralta said. Still, Mexico could be hard-pressed to beat the Kiwis and get to Brazil, especially if it cant find some offence. In 10 games, the Mexicans scored seven goals. "Weve got to reflect, and we have to do whatever it takes to make it to the World Cup," Peralta added. "Things are not working as we wish." Ruiz put Costa Rica in front with a brilliant move, heading the ball to himself in the penalty area, then whipping his left leg around for a shot from 12 yards that goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa had no chance of stopping. But four minutes later, Mexico struck. Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez broke free and was about to put the ball into the net when diving keeper Keylor Navas barely touched it away. But the ball went directly to Peralta, who sent it into the unguarded cage. With rain coming down for most of the second half, particularly late in the match, each side pressed for another goal. Costa Rica got it, putting Mexico on the verge of elimination, when Saborio was left alone in front of the net to powerfully head home a feed from the right wing by Christian Gamboa. El Tri pressed for a tying goal, couldnt find it, but was saved, ironically, by the U.S. rally in Panama. Lineups: Mexico--Guillermo Ochoa; Hugo Ayala, Jorge Torres (Isaac Brizuela, 74th), Miguel Layun, Rafael Marquez; Oribe Peralta, Jesus Zavala, Christian Arevalo, Carlos Pena; Javier Aguino (Giovani Dos Santos, 66th), Javier Hernandez (Raul Jimenez, 60th). Costa Rica--Keylor Navas; Michael Umana, Giancarlo Gonzalez, Johnny Acosta, Bryan Oviedo, Christian Gamboa; Celso Borges, Yeltsin Tejeda (Jose Cubero, 72nd) Christian Bolanos; Joel Campbell (Michael Barrantes, 77th), Bryan Ruiz (Alvaro Saborio, 49th). Bradley Pinion Jersey . - Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin has cleared league-mandated concussion protocol and has returned to practice as a full participant. Rashard Robinson Jersey .C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes have activated defenceman Joni Pitkanen from injured reserve. http://www.officialauthenticsf49erso...-49ERS-JERSEY/ .J. Fair didnt have many chances to be the main option for Syracuse last season.Despite their speed, skill and creativity, there is something missing from the Whitecaps and it was plainly evident both Saturday at Columbus and Wednesday night versus Toronto. Theyre missing the knockout punch. Coach Carl Robinson indicated a few weeks ago that if hes looking to add to the squad, a pure finisher is top of his list. Someone who can score with both feet, his head, from a dead ball, open play. Beautiful goals, ugly goals - the Caps need a bona fide poacher to mix in with an already potent and dynamic group. Someone like, oh, I dont know - Camilo? Many supporters and even media types will not forgive, but Im willing to wager that eventually they would forget after the first spectacular game-winning goal. If Liverpools Luis Suarez taught us anything, its how quickly things can change in the court of public opinion. Something unexpected happened since the brilliant Brazilian walked away from Vancouver. The team didnt fall to pieces like many thought it would. In fact, overall its actually a better, more balanced side than the one he led in scoring last season. Kenny Miller chipped in, Darren Mattocks found his finishing touch while also becoming a provider, while Kekuta Manneh carried on where he left off last year. The Whitecaps have also found some goals and chances from the midfield for the first time in their MLS era thanks to Pedro Morales. Even Erik Hurtado, who seemed to have the touch of a blacksmith, has found his goal scoring mojo of late while adding clever movements to his very unique and powerful skill set. There are two facts we cant ignore about Camilos turbulent tenure in Mexico. He desperately wants to come back and the Whitecaps would love to have his Golden Boot-winning abilities. Carl Robinson always had a great relationship with the 25-year-old and has remained in touch to this day. Dontae Johnson Jersey. The path back to Vancouver for Camilo would be a murky ambiguous, not to mention unprecedented one. There has been all kinds of speculation as to how Vancouver might reacquire the diminutive marksman in the event his troubled Mexican club had its hand forced. Youd think MLS would want to assist Vancouver in that process after the PR nightmare for both club and league back in January. Whether the Whitecaps could bring him back with his team of handlers is another question. His chief advisor and close friend orchestrated a move that did not serve his clients best interests. But is that enough for Camilo to end their long association? Im sure the Whitecaps would prefer to deal with agents they trust. One also has to wonder whether Camilo could justify a DP slot and the corresponding salary, especially in the wake of Kenny Millers departure. It might have been the 34-year-old Scotsmans DP distinction, salary and relative production output that led to the Brazilians departure in the first place. Camilo had plenty of statistical leverage to justify a substantial pay raise. The Whitecaps added threat with a Camilo-like player wouldnt just come from the goals he bags, but also the attention he would take away from some of the other aforementioned threats. In a league with so much parity, a goal here or a free kick there could mean the difference between several rungs of the Western Conference ladder. In the meantime, the Whitecaps will watch and wait with a number 9 jersey available. Whether League MX and the Mexican government deliver their own knockout punch to the rogue club from Queretaro remains to be seen.
