Clint Dempsey was on target for the USA as they moved into the CONCACAF Gold Cup semi-finals with a 2-0 win over Jamaica yesterday.
The Fulham star netted his 21st international goal in the 80th minute to help his side move through to the final four and it was the performance of the entire team which excited Dempsey most.
"We just played good football," said Dempsey. "We were patient. We were confident. We moved the ball around well.
"We made it difficult for them to play out of the back. We were able to find players in-between their lines. We were able to create chances for ourselves.
"The mentality of keep going, keep pressing them, keep taking the game to them. I think eventually we wore them down."
The US will now take on Panama, who beat them in the group stage, in the semi-final at Reliant Stadium in Houston on Wednesday.
