The United States men’s national soccer team won it’s record 10th consecutive game in dominating fashion Wednesday night, topping Honduras 3-1. The victory came in the semifinal of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, which means the U.S. has reached the final of the tournament for the ninth time in 12 tries.

Landon Donovan led the way for the Americans, scoring two goals and assisting on Eddie Johnson’s tally in the 11th minute. The Americans led 2-0 before Honduras answered off a set-piece in the 52nd minute. But Donovan and Alejandro Bedoya hooked up for a beautiful goal just one minute later to set things right.

United States manager Jurgen Klinsmann was ejected from the match in the 87th minute for arguing a horrible call by match referee Walter Quesada. Klinsmann apologized for his conduct after the game. CONCACAF officials will review the referee’s post-match report before deciding whether or not the Americans will have to play without their coach on the field in the final.

Enjoy all the highlights after the jump.

The United States will face Panama (who upset Mexico in the other semifinal) in the tournament final on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
