VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

THE UNITED STATES MEN'S NATIONAL SOCCER TEAM IS HEADED TO IT'S SEVENTH CONSECUTIVE WORLD CUP APPEARANCE.

THANKS TO THE AMERICANS WIN OVER MEXICO -- COMBINED WITH PANAMA'S DRAW WITH HONDURAS.

SOUNDBITE (English) Jurgen Klinsmann, US Men's Soccer Coach:

"it is a special moment and we coaches enjoy it as much as the players do."

EDDIE JOHNSON BROKE THE ICE FOR THE U-S --

BY SCORING ON A HEADER IN THE 49TH MINUTE.

LANDON DONOVAN CAPPED THE SCORING IN THE 78TH MINUTE --

GIVING THE U-S ANOTHER "DOS A CERO" VICTORY OVER IT'S MAIN RIVAL.

THEY LEAD THE "CONCACAF" FINALS WITH FIVE VICTORIES.

THE NEXT STEP IS THE WORLD CUP NEXT SUMMER IN BRAZIL.

AFTER A POOR SHOWING IN 2006 -- AND A ROUND OF 16 LOSS IN 2010 --

THE U-S IS LOOKING TO BUILD ON A STRONG SHOWING IN 2013.

SOUNDBITE (English) Jurgen Klinsmann, US Men's Soccer Coach:

"a qualifying campaign is a very difficult road. And we knew that."

THE WORLD CUP DRAW WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN DECEMBER.

FOR NOW THE AMERICANS CAN TAKE IT EASY IN THEIR FINAL TWO QUALIFIERS --

AGAINST JAMAICA ON OCTOBER 11TH IN KANSAS CITY AND AT PANAMA FOUR DAYS LATER.
