World Cup Appearance: 10th
Best Performance: Third Place (1930)
Key Players: Landon Donovan, Jermaine Jones, Clint Dempsey
With a 2-0 victory over Mexico, the United States made it seven straight World Cup appearances as they look to build on from their solid 2010 performance.
Many of their key players are still there, albeit older and not as sprightly, and talisman Landon Donovan will be influential in leading the team.
There's a wealth of talent on the team, with ex-Fulham and Spurs star Clint Dempsey and current Schalke midfielder Jermaine Jones leading the way and Sunderland striker Jozy Altidore amongst the ranks as well.
