U.S. looking to end Guatemala's World Cup dream

At first glance, the United States' World Cup qualifier on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET, ESPN Classic) against Guatemala appears to be a game in which finding motivation could be difficult. The Americans already booked their passage to next year's hexagonal and can afford to experiment without pressure. But if you dig beneath the surface, you'll find several reasons for the U.S. team to bring the requisite intensity needed to secure victory.
