    USA vs. Honduras - World Cup Qualifier

    One more match for the US in this segment of qualification until the Hex picks back up in September. DaMarcus Beasley is out for this one due to yellow card accumulation. Honduras will be missing a lot of key pieces to their squad, Victor Brnardez, Maynor Figuoroa, Boniek Garcia, and Jerry Bengtson are all out for a variety of reasons. TV coverage is on ESPN and begins at 8 central.

    Re: USA vs. Honduras - World Cup Qualifier

    Man I am hoping for three points out of this. Going into these three games, I thought 7 points out of the three games would be great and provide the team with a nice cushion going into the final 4 games. If we can get all 9 points, the US has basically qualified and takes a ton of pressure off the lads and maybe lets Coack K II play around a little more to see if he can find more depth for the WC roster.

    Not to get off track but do we know what the Gold Cup roster is going to look like yet?

    I would venture to guess it will look really young and really MLSy.

    Re: USA vs. Honduras - World Cup Qualifier

    I would love if this game outdrew the NBA Finals game for TV attendance.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    They already released a prelim Gold Cup roster. I'm on my phone, otherwise I'd try to find it.

    Re: USA vs. Honduras - World Cup Qualifier

    Ian beat me to it. JK already released a preliminary Gold Cup of over 30 names. As most people predicted it is MLS heavy and interestingly included Landon Donovan. One guy that I am excited to see in the Gold Cup is Jack Mac.

    Landon Donovan, Carlos Bocanegra on preliminary Gold Cup roster - Soccer - SI.com

    In case people were looking for it. Not a bad starting roster will be interested to see who makes the cut.

    Could easily be up 3 or 4, looking a little tired but still pretty sharp.

    Dempsey really should have gotten one of those to go. A wins a win though. Hopefully Altidore can keep this going in the autumn.

    Solid win at altitude in the heat against a pretty good midfield.

    Agree but never really a threat. They were completely lacking at the forward spot. Every run fizzled miserably.
