MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica - Canada fell short at the CONCACAF Under-17 Women's Championship final, losing 4-2 to Mexico on penalty kicks.

After 90 scoreless minutes, Mexico converted its first three penalty shots to seal its first CONCACAF title at the U-17 level.

Canada will now turn its attention to Costa Rica, where the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup will take place in 2014. The Canadian team earned a berth in that tournament with a 5-0 win over Jamaica in the semifinals earlier this week.

"I'm really, really proud of the girls," said head coach Bev Priestman. "If you look at what this team's about, it's about future national team players. I think, losing on penalties, it's hard for the girls but ultimately, there have been some girls who stepped up in this tournament and are knocking on the door."

Along with Canada and Mexico, Costa Rica, China, Japan, South Korea, Nigeria, Venezuela, Colombia and Paraguay have all qualified for the World Cup.

Six spots are still to be determined, with two countries from Africa, one from Oceania and three from Europe still to be qualified.
