The United States beat Guatemala 3-1 with two goals from Clint Dempsey and advanced to the final round of CONCACAF qualifying. Jamaica goes through as well in second place.
It was a very effective performance from the U.S. They attacked in the first half. They solidified in the second. The one worrisome place is at the back. The U.S. got beat over the top for an early Carlos Ruiz goal and looked out of their depth handling him much of the game. They will face teams with more speed and better depth and talent.
