USA tops Group A after unconvincing win against Haiti

Despite seven changes to the starting lineup from Klinsmann, the hosts produced another lackluster performance just squeaking through this game with a narrow 1-0 victory courtesy of another Dempsey goal in the 47th minute.

That said, thee USA will go through to the knockout rounds at the top of Group A after Panama were held to another draw against Honduras.

If they are to have a chance of winning the tournament and directly qualifying for the Confederations Cup however, they will have to substantially step up their game after dramatically under-performing last night at Foxborough and in their opening game against Honduras.

Zardes and Johannsson had good games and Dempsey of course was on the scoreboard again, but Klinsmann may need to start dusting off Plan C for the Panama game on Monday.
