The United States qualified for the soccer competition at the Seoul Olympics when Trinidad and Tobago beat El Salvador, 1-0, Sunday in a qualifying match.

The United States, which has two victories over Trinidad and Tobago and one over El Salvador in its qualifying group, clinched the Olympic slot when El Salvador lost.

The United States still must play El Salvador on May 25 in Indianapolis, but the game's result will have no bearing on the qualifying.
