[VIDEO PICK: Retro] Highlights from three decades of World Cup qualifiers between tonight's combatants in Kansas, the USA and Guatemala. …

One game for all the marbles, we were unable find highlights from games with results that would eliminate the Americans, but if you're feeling overconfident, here's nearly a quarter century of contests between Los Chapines and the USA to remind you it hasn't always been easy. On to our programming ...

Both goals (in 16 seconds) from the 1-1 tie four months ago ...



A 1-0 win by the USA in August 2008 (Carlos Bocanegra goal at 2:00 minute mark) ...



A 2-0 U.S. win in March 2005 (goals by Eddie Johnson & Steve Ralston) ...



A 1-0, win by the USA in September 2000 (Brian McBride goal). ...



The 1-1 tie in July, 2000 (Ante Razov goal, Carlos Ruiz equalizer).



Finally, here are all three goals from the very first World Cup Qualifier between the two in 1989, and the U.S. lineup.

The opening goal, a Bruce Murray volley smashing home a John Harkes pass, is real quality, in any era. Guatemala's equalizer, by Raul Chacon Estrada, was also nice. Eric Eichmann's winner wasn't pretty, but the USA was victorious, 2-1, and went on to qualify for the 1990 World Cup in Italy, its first in 40 years.

June 17, 1989, in New Britain, Conn.
USA 2 Guatemala 1. USA Goals: Murray, Eichmann.
USA -- Vanole, Banks, Trittschuh, Windischmann, Stollmeyer, Bliss (Doyle), Ramos, Harkes, Murray, Gyau (Caligiuri), Eichmann.
