Watch: Highlights of the U.S. men's national team's 2013 campaign

2013 was an emotional one for the U.S. men's national team.

At the start, there was uncertainty, frustration and disappointment. As the year went on, there was tangible progress and great hope, and by the end jubilation. Jozy Altidore emerged from his international scoring slump to help carry the USA through the Hexagonal. Landon Donovan returned with great effect, guiding the Americans to the Gold Cup. The USA topped the Hex, added another Dos A Cero to the record books, and, by the end, Jurgen Klinsmann was awarded with a contract extension through 2018 and an added role as U.S. technical director.

U.S. Soccer assembled a lengthy highlight video that encompasses the USA's year, from its rocky beginning in San Pedro Sula to its triumphant conclusion (lackluster November friendlies notwithstanding) atop the Hexagonal. As the clock winds down on 2013 and attention turns toward the 2014 World Cup, relive all the action below (and from all of us at SI.com, have a happy and healthy new year):
