Kick-off: 8.00pm PT USA went into their opening group match as strong favourites against Belize. Despite manager Jurgen Klinsmann being unable for the most part to select European based players, his side had more than enough to come through this one. Landon Donovan was especially keen to add to his tally of 51 international goals to win over fans following his break from the sport. Belize drew inspiration from Martinique and Panama who had already caused upsets in this tournament. Deon McCaulay provided the main goal threat having scored 16 goals in 26 internationals.
