USA up to second in CONCACAF qualifying

*     *     *

Here is the highlights the U.S. men’s national team’s 1-0 home win over Costa Rica in snowy Colorado. Clint  Dempsey scored the lone goal, his 12th in qualifying, tied for most in U.S. Soccer history. Sounders FC’s Eddie Johnson got about 14 minutes in off the bench (the ESPN broadcast noted he was recovering from a muscle injury this week in training).

With the win, the U.S. leaped the second place in the final round of CONCACAF’s World Cup qualifying. The teams are through two of 10 games; the next round of action is Tuesday:

1. Honduras (1-0-1), 4 points — next at Panama
2. USA (1-1-0), 3 points — next at Mexico
T-3. Jamaica (0-0-2), 2 points — next at Costa Rica
T-3. Mexico (0-0-2), 2 points — next vs. USA
T-3. Panama (0-0-2), 2 points — next vs. Honduras
6. Costa Rica (0-1-1), 1 point — next vs. Jamaica
