BY John Godfrey PostedSIX TEAMS, including the United States, have made it to the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualification. The top three will go to Brazil in June 2014. The fourth place team will play a home-and-away series against the winner of the Oceania region for a chance to play in the world's best sporting event. The bottom two teams will go home knowing they came thisclose to a chance at glory. The World Cup is what it's all about. And it's a huge part of what American Soccer Now is all about.
