Time to see who advances out of Group A. The USMNT can make it simple with a win.

Perhaps it doesn't, but it feels like it often comes to this for the United States in big tournaments: win and you're in. After an opening loss to Colombia, followed by a rebound 4-0 win against Costa Rica, the "just win and you're good (for now)" scenario is the one in which the USMNT currently find themselves.

After all the acrimony and hand-wringing, the United States bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Colombia in their Copa America Centenario opener by routing Costa Rica. The game was essentially decided as a contest when Oscar Duarte gave Bobby Wood carte blanche to face goal and fire past Patrick Pemberton in the 42nd minute, expanding the USMNT's lead to three, and Graham Zusi padded that lead with a late solo effort.

In a game that the USMNT pretty much had to win to ensure their Copa America survival, they played terrifically as they cruised to a 4-0 domination of Costa Rica.

The United States entered their match against Costa Rica on Tuesday with very high stakes. A loss would mean an incredibly disappointing exit from the 2016 Copa America—as well as the end of the Jurgen Klinsmann Era—a draw would necessitate help from the rest of the group in order to stay alive, and a win would put them in pole position to advance, depending on the result of the Colombia-Paraguay match.

If anyone had any money that the United States would defeat Paraguay and then watch as Colombia would lose to Costa Rica in order to win Group A, chances are you are a liar, but I may want to rub you for luck. Nevertheless, seeing Geoff Cameron and John Brooks work to preserve a clean sheet for a 10-man USA squad - DeAndre Yedlin got two yellow cards in quick succession - so that they could play the Group B runner-up (which could be any one of Brazil, Ecuador or Peru) on Thursday in Seattle was impressive.
