Jurgen Klinsmann's side opened the scoring in the 35th minute when Fabian Johnson set up Jozy Altidore.

Eddie Johnson doubled the lead in the 53rd minute after Geoff Cameron had set him up.

The United States moved two points clear of Costa Rica in the standings as Panama dropped to fifth spot.

Costa Rica picked up a point from a goalless draw with Mexico who continued their disappointing campaign.

Supporters called for coach Jose Manuel de la Torre to quit after his side made it five draws from six games and 270 minutes without a goal at the Estadio Azteca.

After Mexico's last match before their Confederations Cup appearance in Brazil, De la Torre said: "This is all my fault."

"If the players' form here is not the same as in their club teams, it is my fault, not theirs. But I am not thinking of quitting because every day I wake up wilful to win everything.

"I can make changes in the next squad nomination. I have two months left to think about it."

Honduras climbed up to fourth in the standings thanks to a 2-0 victory over winless Jamaica at home in Tegucigalpa.

Oscar Boniek Garcia put the Catrachos ahead in the 10th minute after Roger Rojas headed the ball down.

Seventeen minutes later Garcia left the field with an injury but Rojas secured the win with a goal after 88 minutes.

Reading's Jamaican defender Adrian Mariappa did not finish the game after being sent off with 14 minutes to go.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
