After defeating Nicaragua 5-2 in an Olympic qualifier in Havana, the USA is just one win from clinching a spot in the 2008 Olympic tournament in Beijing.
The USA needs to defeat Panama tonight to wrap up a spot. That would guarantee the USA a top two finish in the tournament and an automatic berth. The USA plays Cuba on Tuesday in its last game. Cuba is close to wrapping up the other spot.
The other teams in the tournament will get another chance in the spring of 2008 to qualify.
