Late Follow-Up: U.S. 1 - Guatemala 0

The US and Guatemala met Wednesday for the first semifinal qualification round for the World Cup 2010.

Wednesday was different. Defender Carlos Bocanegra changed the U.S. record in Guatemala, as well as, gave the team a much needed +3 after the first round of group play.
