Clarence Goodson and Kenny Cooper each scored to give the Americans a 2-0 victory over Honduras on Thursday night and a spot in their third straight CONCACAF Gold Cup final.
It was the U.S. team’s third win over Honduras in less than seven weeks, and the second at Soldier Field.
Goodson scored just before halftime, his first international goal. Cooper scored in the 90th minute, sealing the victory after Honduras had threatened to tie it.
U.S. goalkeeper Troy Perkins made an excellent save on a shot by Carlo Costly in the 85th minute, then Jay Heaps made a sliding block to clear the rebound and end the threat.
