They will face the third-place team from Group A or C on Wednesday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Matt Miazga headed in the USMNT's third goal.

However, Dom Dwyer and Corona saw second-half spot-kicks saved and United States appeared set to finish second to Panama in Group B.

Four minutes into the second half Dwyer was yanked down in the penalty area and the referee immediately pointed to the penalty spot. The USMNT got another opportunity with Graham Zusi taking a free kick from just outside of the box. After defender Luis Copete picked up a second yellow card for a hard foul on Agudelo, Zusi placed a ideal free kick to the back post and Matt Miazga - who earned his first start for the U.S. MNT since May 22, 2016 - headed the ball past Lorente for a 3-0 lead.
