ST. JOHN’S, Antigua (CBS/AP) –– Eddie Johnson scored twice Friday night, including the winning goal in second-half injury time, lifting the United States to the verge of advancing in World Cup qualifying with a nervous 2-1 victory over Antigua and Barbuda.

If the Americans beat Guatemala on Tuesday night in Kansas City, Kan., they will move into the final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The U.S. has 10 points in Group A.

Johnson connected on headers in the 20th minute and then in the 90th minute in his first game for the U.S. team in two years. He was set up by Graham Zusi for the first goal and substitute Alan Gordon on the second.

Peter Byers scored in the 25th minute for Antigua.

Landon Donovan did not play due to an injured knee he sustained while playing with club team Galaxy.
