LIVESTRONG Sporting Park will play host to its first-ever World Cup qualifier tomorrow as the United States Men’s National Team (USMNT) takes on Guatemala. Sporting Kansas City’s star midfielder, Graham Zusi, assisted on the opening goal of USMNT’s last-minute qualifier win against Antigua and Barbuda last Friday.

The team's lack of a definitive style of play during the shaky matchwhich new US Manager Jurgen Klinsmann said they would develop when he first took over—has some fans worried, but the players don’t seem to be.

"It’s a work in progress for sure," midfielder Michael Bradley told The Kansas City Star over the weekend. "[But] at the end of the day, when you get to the World Cup, nobody remembers how you got there."

For now, the USMNT simply hopes to play well enough to win. The rest they can figure out later.

"We’re still trying to figure out what’s going to work best for us," midfielder Clint Dempsey told the Star. "The most important thing is you put yourself in position to get out of the group and to qualify for the World Cup."
