The United States men's national team leads Panama 2-0 in World Cup qualifying at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. Jozy Altidore scored from close range in the 36th minute to give the U.S. the lead. Eddie Johnson made it 2-0 in the 52nd minute with a calm finish off a great ball from Geoff Cameron.
After a last-minute win in Jamaica on Friday, the United States can go top of the qualifying group with a win after Costa Rica and Mexico played to a 0-0 draw earlier.
U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann has made two changes to his lineup Tuesday night against Panama, inserting Eddie Johnson and Geoff Cameron into the starting lineup.
The changes were necessitated by a concussion suffered by Jermaine Jones against Jamaica and a yellow card suspension to Graham Zusi and changed the U.S. to a 4-2-3-1 alignment.
Jones caught an elbow against Jamaica, but is expected to be available next week when the U.S. faces Honduras in Sandy, Utah.
Zusi picked up a yellow card in the 2-1 win over Jamaica and was suspended for this match.
