In danger of missing World Cup, US needs win over Panama

  In danger of missing World Cup, US needs win over Panama Months and months of stumbles have put the United States in a precarious position. Preparing for Friday's crucial qualifier against Panama, the U.S. held a closed-doors scrimmage Wednesday against Orlando City's B team. A victory Friday would put the U.S. on track to reach its eighth straight World Cup with a win or possibly a tie at Trinidad and Tobago next week. Less than a victory against the Panamanians could lead to either a playoff next month or elimination.
