It continued to be a lively affair as Altidore received the ball from Nagbe and turned his opponent inside the area but Carrillo was up to the task.
The Americans (3-0-1 in this tournament) extended their unbeaten streak against El Salvador to 14-0-3 since 1993 and claimed a semifinal berth for the ninth consecutive Gold Cup. They were failing to connect on the simplest of passes. "Group play was an opportunity for a lot of players to get a chance". A short backpass by Lichaj was collected by Rodolfo Zelaya, who raced towards the U.S. box. Howard was off his line with vigor and stifled the early chance.

On a 60th minute corner kick, defender Henry Romero first pinched the nipple of Jozy Altidore as they waited for the ball to be delivered and then bit the USA forward as the ball was served. Before this summer, his most memorable Gold Cup moment was watching Giovani Dos Santos's iconic, backbreaking golazo sail just over his head in the 2011 final.
The United States has advanced to the semifinals and will play Costa Rica. Players like Camargo and Michael Murillo are really defining personalities for this match.
Midfielder Gyasi Zardes might have scored earlier for the U.S. but his lobbed effort was ruled out for a narrow offside decision. El Salvador certainly could've made Wednesday's quarterfinal a bit tighter if it had the composure and ruthlessness to punish a couple American misplays.
Right back Eric Lichaj, who plays with Nottingham Forest of the English Football League Championship, added the insurance goal in the second minute of the first half's extra time with a five-hole shot on Carillo. Los Cuscatlecos were not that team.
The new additions should make Wednesday's quarter-final in Philadelphia a formality.
Arena, though, needed to look beyond Wednesday.
Howard however insisted score-settling would not be on the agenda. If you stay on beyond the free trial, you'll be charged $25 per month plus any additional packages. The championship chemistry still isn't.
The late-afternoon start, played in oppressive heat, featured few scoring opportunities in a slow-paced first half. And for the first time in the tournament, the club will need to be better than just good enough. "I shouldn't be saying these things happen, but they do".
In the first match, Costa Rica went ahead on an own goal in the 77 minute. And so their demeanor was similar to Lichaj's-happy, but far from celebratory.
U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard also had a humorous response. History won't matter, and the margin for error has shriveled.
