SANDY, Utah– A perfect June is within grasp for the U.S. Men’s National Team as they face Honduras tonight (9pm, ESPN) in the third of three World Cup qualifiers this month.
The U.S. is riding a four-match unbeaten streak in qualifying, including recent wins in Jamaica and vs. Panama that have helped the Americans top the qualifying group. A win tonight at Rio Tinto Stadium could push the Americans four points clear of the entire group (depending on the result of tonight’s Costa Rica-Honduras match).
Honduras enters the match missing several key players, including regular centerbacks Victor Bernardez and Maynor Figueroa, but the Catrachos will still have a solid lineup, with Roger Espinoza and Mario Martinez among the key players who also featured in the February win over the U.S. in San Pedro Sula.
