ALAJUELA, Costa Rica – Revenge can be sweet, especially when you can deny your rivals of a big prize.

That would be an opportunity to reach the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup as the United States made no doubt about it with a 5-2 semifinal victory over Mexico in the Concacaf Beach Soccer Championship at the Sports Complex Fedefutbol-Plycem.

The Americans, who qualified for the sixth time, will compete in the World Cup in Russia Aug. 19-29 along with El Salvador. The Central American side defeat Guatemala, 6-2.

The two semifinal winners will meet for the confederation title here Sunday.

Wilfredo Ramos tallied twice as Nick Perera, Tomas Canale and David Mondragon added goals. A U.S. own goal and a Cristofher Castillo score accounted for El Triโ€™s scoring.
