CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) –- The USA is going to Brazil!

The US National team booked its ticket to next year’s World Cup with a 2-0 win over dreaded rivals Mexico — with some help from a 2-2 draw between Honduras and Panama.

Now, the KYW Philly Soccer Show breaks it all down for you.

KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch are joined by philly.com‘s Jonathan Tannenwald to talk about the win.

The Yanks were depleted going into the match.  With midfield general Michael Bradley out with an ankle sprain and three other players lost due to suspension, coach Jürgen Klinsmann had to draw from his bench to get the win.

Then we talk Union, with the team’s offense beginning to falter.

With only one goal in the last four games and no wins in the same span, the team will look to get back on track Saturday against an equally struggling Houston Dynamo team, who are coming off a 4-1 thrashing at home against New York Red Bulls.
