  • Draw moves U.S. into third place in Hexagonal
    The U.S. and El Salvador drew 1-1 in their World Cup qualifying match June 29 in San Salvador. After a lackluster first half, the U.S. cranked up the intensity, putting a good deal of pressure on the hosts. In the 51st minute, a cross from John Harkes on the right side split the El Salvador defense and Roy Lassiter volleyed the ball home from six yards out with his left foot to give the U.S. a 1-0 lead.

  • Wynalda out for USA-El Salvador match
    The U.S. will be without forward Eric Wynalda for this weekend's World Cup qualifying match against El Salvador. Wynalda, who has been bothered by a groin injury throughout the 1997 MLS season, reaggravated the injury during the USA's 2-1 win over Israel on June 17. He is not expected to travel with the U.S. to El Salvador. With Wynalda, the national team's all-time leading goalscorer, out, Steve Sampson will likely choose from among Jovan Kirovski, Roy Lassiter, Claudio Reyna, and David Wagner for his starting frontrunners.
