US advanced to CONCACAF Gold Cup Quarterfinals

In a game that the United States couldn't lose if they wanted to continue on in the Gold Cup, they got an early start from their offense on Tuesday night in Kansas City. After Guadeloupe hit the cross bar, the US responded with a 9th minute goal from Jozy Altidore. That was enough for the 1-0 win and a trip to RFK Stadium to play Jamaica on Sunday.

"We always play well in Washington," US goalkeeper Tim Howard said. "And the support we have in Washington is fantastic."

After starting their bench players, Panama got a late equalizer to finish 1-1 against Canada. Panama won Group C and will play El Salvador in the second game of Sunday's quarterfinal doubleheader at RFK.
