ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Landon Donovan scored two goals and set up another, and the United States beat Honduras 3-1 on Wednesday night to advance to the CONCACAF Gold Cup final.
The Americans will play Pamama, a 2-1 winner over Mexico in the second semifinal, on Sunday in Chicago.
The U.S. has won a team-record 10 straight games.
The U.S. struck first when Donovan found Eddie Johnson running through the middle of the Honduran defense. Johnson took a dribble and powered a shot past goalkeeper Donis Escober 11 minutes into the game.

In the 27th minute, Johnson started another scoring sequence with a pass to midfielder Alejandro Bedoya. Donovan received Bedoya's short chip off his chest in the middle of the goal box and poked a shot past Escober.
Nery Medina of Honduras made it a one-goal game in the 52nd minute, heading in a cross from Marvin Chavez.
The Americans countered a minute later when Bedoya ran down a long ball from Clarence Goodson and crossed it to Donovan, who scored from a few yards out.
