The U.S. Men's Under-23 National Team didn't make it to the Olympics, but that hasn't stopped one team from stepping forward to capture the appreciation of plenty of American soccer fans at these Olympic Games.
Honduras has put together a dream run into the Olympic quarterfinals, and with four MLS players on the roster, it has become easy to root for them (and let's face it, not many American fans are going to root for Mexico). The 'Catrachos' face their toughest test of these Olympics today as they try to keep their Cinderella run going with an upset win over Brazil in today's Olympic quarterfinals.
Mexico will try to book a place in the Olympic semifinals by knocking off a dangerous Senegal side this morning. 'El Tri' won their group and have a very reasonable path to the gold medal game.
If you're craving some European soccer action, Paris St. Germain takes on Barcelona in a match-up of star-studded rosters. If you would rather see a U.S. national team player in action, Jose Torres and Pachuca are in action this afternoon.
