Soccer-Mexico qualify for World Cup in Russia with 1-0 win over Panama

Sept 2 (Reuters) - Mexico became the first side from the Northern, Central Amerian and Caribbean (CONCAFAC) region to qualify for the Russia World Cup on Friday when an Hirving Lozano goal gave them a 1-0 win over Panama at the Azteca stadium in Mexico City.

The Mexicans top the six-team group with 17 points and are certain to finish in the top three to guarantee a place at the global showpiece starting in June, 2018.
