The USA and Canada booked passage to next year's  FIFA Women's World Cup  in China with wins over Mexico and Jamaica respectively in the semi-final round of 2006 CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup action.

Canada booked a spot in the final of the  CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup  and a place in China with a comprehensive 4-0 win over Jamaica in Wednesday's semi-final.

Ace striker Christine Sinclair was in top form and bagged a brace with goals in minutes 40 and 70. Rhian Wilkinson's 51st-minute goal and an opportunistic goal from Melanie Booth two minutes from time rounded out the scoring for the Canucks.

The night's second semi-final from the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles saw the heavily-backed hosts slip past a rugged Mexico outfit 2-0.

Towering striker Abby Wambach scored a goal in each half to see Greg Ryan's side comfortably clinch their spot in the regional final and ensure their presence at next year world finals. 

Canada and the US will now meet on Sunday to decide who finishes as North, Central American and Caribbean champions for 2006. Mexico and Jamaica will play off earlier in the day, with the winner squaring off against Japan in a home/away play-off for a potential third CONCACAF spot at China 2007.
