Johnson scores twice in US win over Antigua


ST. JOHN'S, Antigua (AP) -Eddie Johnson scored twice, including the winning goal in second-half injury time, to lift the United States to the verge of advancing in World Cup qualifying with a 2-1 victory over Antigua on Friday.

If the Americans beat Guatemala on Tuesday night in Kansas City, Kansas, they will move into the final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The U.S. has 10 points in Group A.

Johnson scored from a header in the 20th minute and in the dying moments in his first game for the U.S. team in two years. He was set up by Graham Zusi for the first goal and substitute Alan Gordon on the second.

Peter Byers scored in the 25th minute for Antigua.
