Everyone was talking about how we most likely blew our chances at advancing after losing to Colombia, but how much can you expect when they face a #3 ranked team.  It’s not like we pride ourselves on soccer anyways and a 2-0 loss to Colombia really was not that bad of a loss.  Assuming Colombia finishes business against Costa Rica and Paraguay, all the US needs is a win and draw in their last two games which should be very doable.  I would imagine that Colombia will win out, but say they draw with Paraguay and/or Costa Rica, the US would still just need to win and draw.  If somehow Colombia loses a game, then US would need to win both games.  However, that seems an unlikely scenario given their ranking.  I think a win and a draw is doable for the US, especially on our home soil, so it’s not time to panic just yet.
