DaMarcus Beasley is hoping the confidence of the USA can hang around for another 12 months.
Beasley captained the US side to victory in the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, which culminated in a 1-0 win over Panama in the final on Sunday, and wants the winning streak of 11 games to continue.
The US currently sit top of the CONCACAF hexagonal qualifying group for the 2014 World Cup with four matches remaining and Beasley is looking for more of the same ahead of September fixtures with Costa Rica and Mexico and October matches against Jamaica and Panama.
“You want to catch a good vibe on the last year of qualifying and before the World Cup. Winning 11 games internationally is big,” he said.
“You want to start peaking at this time before World Cup. While we are still in qualifying you want that confidence, and right now in the USA we have that confidence; the confidence that we can beat anybody and hopefully it stays until Brazil.”
