U.S. Soccer Dominant In World Cup Qualifier

U.S. Soccer Dominant In World Cup Qualifier, Team USA shrugs off doomsday scenarios and reaches the final round of World Cup qualifying. U.S. avoids disaster, advances to final round of 2014 World Cup qualification process, Crisis was averted for the United States on Tuesday night as the grim specter of a long spell in the soccer wilderness was brushed aside in Kansas City.

Still, there was a reason why the celebrations from head coach Jurgen Klinsmann and his players told a tale of relief rather than jubilation after the 3-1 victory over Guatemala booked a spot in the next round of World Cup qualifying.

The semifinal round of the CONCACAF qualification process shouldn't have posed any concern for Klinsmann's side. Yet it did, from the frustrating night when it lost in Jamaica to a narrow escape against Antigua and Barbuda all the way to the first five minutes on Tuesday when Guatemala's Carlos Ruiz scored the opening goal that briefly cracked open the door to disaster.
