(Reuters) – Panama qualified for the World Cup finals for the first time on Tuesday after a 2-1 victory over Costa Rica in the final round of CONCACAF qualifiers that also saw Honduras pip the United States to a playoff place against Australia. Honduras beat Mexico 3-2 to set up a date with the Socceroos in November, while the United States lost 2-1 to Trinidad & Tobago and will be absent from the World Cup finals for the first time since 1986.
