USA Advances To Quarterfinals With Sloppy Win Over Guadeloupe, 1-0

There's an old adage in sports about every win being a good win but boy is hard to get excited about a 1-0 victory over Guadeloupe. Things started of great when U.S. forward Jozy Altidore absolutely blasted a ball into the top corner of the net from well outside of the box at the nine minute mark. From there, Team USA would get plenty of chances but couldn't convert from anywhere. 

U.S. will now face Jamaica on Sunday, June 19 at 3:00 p.m. ET at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC.

Here's a You Tube video of Jozy Altidore's brilliant strike. Too bad the team couldn't follow it up and convert some of the easier looks they got later in the game.
