Team USA footballers prematurely celebrated their qualification to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. This happened after the Americans defeated the team from Panama in the qualifying tournament for the North and Central America and the Caribbean, reports the Daily Mail .

The meeting of the two teams took place in Orlanda and ended with a score of 5:1 in favor of the US team. It is noted that during the match a hat-trick was able to get Chelsea player Christian Pulisic.

According to the media, after the match, the Americans unfurled a banner in front of the fans, on which it was written: “Qualified.” However, the opponents in the qualifying group still have a chance to get ahead of the US team, later the American players admitted their mistake. 

At the moment, the Americans have 25 points, they are second. The Mexicans have the same number, the leader of the group is the Canadian team - 28 points. Costa Rica is in fourth place with 22 points. According to the rules, only the first three teams qualify for the World Cup, the fourth will have to participate in the play-offs.



However, there is a possibility that the US team will fall to fourth place if, during the last round of the qualifying competitions - on March 30 - it loses to Costa Rica by a margin of six or more goals.

Meanwhile, the Canadian national football team has already guaranteed itself access to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The last time Canadians took part in the World Cup was in 1986.
