Fans of the U.S. Men's National Team cheer as the squad takes the field for pre game warm ups before taking on Mexico at Columbus Crew Stadium on September 10, 2013 in Columbus, Ohio.

One thing that is no fantasy is the United States national soccer team's berth for the 2014 World Cup.

Eddie Johnson scored on a corner kick in the 49th minute, and Landon Donovan later added another goal as the U.S. beat Mexico 2-0 in Columbus, Ohio.

Winning that match qualified the U.S. for next year's World Cup in Brazil, but  Mexico is now in danger of not getting in. With more on what this means for both nations is Dave Denholm, soccer commentator for Fox Sports.
