gzOctober 15, 2013, the final day of CONCACAF qualifying. Mexico had suffered defeat earlier in the day, and they sat in 5th place in CONCACAF qualifying. Panama was leading the United States 2-1, and they seemed to be on their way to an intercontinental playoff with New Zealand. Mexico would be heading home, or so it seemed. With 90 seconds left in stoppage time, Brad Davis swung a ball into the box, and Graham Zusi headed it into the back of the net. The US had leveled the scoreline. Zusi had destroyed Panama’s World Cup hopes, and he put the Mexicans into the intercontinental playoff with New Zealand. El Tri would go on to defeat the Kiwis and advance to the World Cup.

The Terps took a 1-0 lead, which they would hold onto. In his final two games as a Terp, Zusi had scored two game-winning goals and lead his team to an NCAA Championship.
