Jamaica earns World Cup trip on penalties after draw

FRISCO, Texas (AP) Jamaica earned a spot in next year's Women's World Cup on penalties after a 2-2 draw with Panama on Wednesday in the third-place at the CONCACAF qualifying tournament.

Both teams were vying for a first-ever trip to soccer's premier tournament. Panama still has a chance to qualify for the World Cup in a two-legged playoff with Argentina.

The United States was set to play Canada in the championship match Wednesday night at Toyota Stadium. Both the United States and Canada already booked spots in the World Cup with wins in the semifinals. The top three finishers in the tournament earn berth, so the third-place match determined the other team.
