ARLINGTON, Texas — The United States advanced to the final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup with a 3-1 win over Honduras on Wednesday, with Landon Donovan scoring two goals and setting up another.

The Americans struck first when Donovan found Eddie Johnson running through the middle. He dribbled the ball then powered a shot past the goalkeeper to put the hosts ahead in the 11th minute.

In the 27th minute, Donovan controlled a short chip off his chest and poked a shot past the keeper.
