[1]KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The primary objective for the United States on Tuesday night was to secure a victory over Guatemala, or at worst a draw, and squeak through to the next round of World Cup qualifying.

It wasn’t the only goal.

Jurgen Klinsmann revealed a much more ruthless motive in the 3-1 victory that allowed the U.S. to win Group A and advance to the six-team finals in North and Central America and the Caribbean: The second-year manager of the national team wanted to send a message to the rest of the world.

Klinsmann believes the emphatic victory will have the desired effect, giving the Americans plenty of momentum heading into a busy 2013 season.
