World Cup The United States should have a smooth ride into the final round of qualifying, judging by the history of the national team.

The preliminary draw for the 2014 tournament yesterday grouped the United States and Jamaica with two winners of preliminary qualifying, likely Guatemala and Haiti. The US team has never lost to Jamaica and has not been defeated by Guatemala since 1988 or Haiti since 1973.

Three CONCACAF nations will be determined from an eight-team qualifying round. The World Cup is scheduled for June 12-July 13, 2014, in Brazil.
