The Americans maintained their perfect record in Group A to secure a spot in the final phase of North American qualifying, where three berths in South Africa will be decided. The Cubans lost their fourth successive game, all but ending their hopes of progressing.
Beasley opened the scoring in the 10th minute. The Glasgow Rangers star took a pass from Sacha Kljestan, outraced a defender on the left side of the penalty area and side-footed the ball past Cuban goalkeeper Odelin Molina.
Beasley scored again in the 30th minute, beating Molina from 10 metres out, but the Cubans answered seconds later, Jenzy Munoz finding the goal early in the 32nd minute. Munoz lofted a chip from just beyond the penalty area that grazed the bottom of the goalpost and dropped in, shocking a crowd of 20,293 at RFK Stadium.
Helpless USA goalkeeper Tim Howard of English Premier side Everton could only watch the ball fall across the line, the first goal conceded by the Americans in six FIFA World Cup qualifying matches this year.
But Cuban hopes dimmed in the 42nd minute when midfielder Yoel Colome fouled Landon Donovan to draw his second yellow card of the match and an expulsion, leaving the Caribbean side with ten men.
Donovan nearly struck in the 44th minute, chipping across the front of the goal, and then found the net in the 48th minute from point blank range to give the Americans a 3-1 edge. Brian Ching added a goal in the 63rd minute and Jozy Altidore, of Spain's Villarreal, netted another in the 87th minute. USA defender Oguchi Onyewu finished the scoring in the 90th minute to complete the rout.

Milan’s bid to win the one major UEFA trophy that has eluded them will continue into the group stage after adding to their 3-1 home win in Switzerland. Ronaldinho, fresh from his winner in Sunday's Milan derby, set up Andriy Shevchenko with a looping cross and the Ukrainian striker claimed his 61st UEFA competition goal.

Ronaldinho picked the perfect day to claim his first Serie A goal as his header gave AC Milan a 1-0 victory against FC Internazionale Milano, allowing S.S. Lazio to move to the summit.
Lazio's 3-1 win at Torino FC had given them the lead in the afternoon but unbeaten Inter were aiming to return to the top. However, 36 minutes into his Derby della Madonnina debut, Ronaldinho leapt to head in a Kaká cross. With 13 minutes left Inter lost Nicolás Burdisso after his second booking and Marco Materazzi, who had already been replaced, was later shown a red card on the bench. Milan held on and are sixth, two places and one point behind Inter.
