Kick-Off: 15:30 Local (07:30 BST) Assistant referees: Carlos Matos (Portugal) Egon Bereuter (Austria) Fourth official: Jan Wegereef (Netherlands) Man of the Match: Landon Donovan (United States) The USA played with great determination to overcome a disappointing Mexico team - and secure a place in the last eight for the first time since 1930. Brian McBride, who spent large periods of the match watching from the half-way line as Mexico pushed forward, gave the USA the lead after just eight minutes. And Landon Donovan doubled his team's advantage after striking on the break mid-way through the second-half. After losing all three games at France 98, the USA have responded with some excellent displays in Korea and Japan - and have been rewarded with a quarter-final tie against Germany in Ulsan on Friday. And their victory over Mexico is not only their first ever at the knockout stages of the World Cup but also their first clean sheet at a World Cup final since they beat England 1-0 in 1950.
