World Cup Qualifying: United States vs. Mexico - USA WINS DOS A CERO

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Dos a cero? Dos a cero. Dos a cero!!

The United States Men's National Team hosted Mexico Tuesday night in Columbus in the only way they know how. Dos a Cero. Second half goals from Eddie Johnson and Landon Donovan were enough to earn all three points after Tim Howard's goalkeeping clinic to keep things scoreless in the first half. Dos a Cero. The win - if Panama fails to win in Honduras - will be enough to secure the USMNT passage to their 7th consecutive World Cup next summer in Brazil. Dos a Cero. With Costa Rica's draw to Jamaica, anyway, the US again goes top of the Hexagonal group. Dos a Cero.

Juergen Klinsmann again made all the right in-game adjustments, as the US looked a completely different side after halftime. Dos a Cero. Eddie Johnson was a monster on set pieces all night. Dos a Cero. Landon Donovan was consistently dangerous on the counter and at the back post. Dos a Cero. Mix Diskerud entered in the second half and immediately help the US midfield and created the final goal. Dos a Cero.

Even a late penalty for the US couldn't change the inevitable scoreline, as Clint Dempsey nonchalantly sent his 12-yard effort well wide of the post. Dos a Cero. Mexico's loss puts them potentially 5 points adrift of the last automatic spot, meaning anything other than a win in either of next month's final two qualifiers will land them - at best - in a two-game playoff with New Zealand for the final spot in Brazil. Dos a Cero.

All is right with the world. Dos a Cero.

Dos a Cero.
