Earning a rare start alongside Michael Bradley, Mix Diskerud showed flashes of why he’s being touted as a future starting midfielder for the U.S. Men’s National Team.

Diskerud combined well with Bradley and connected with Jermaine Jones at centerback and Jozy Altidore at forward when the U.S. were attacking in the final third, creating a few chances that the U.S. were unable to fully capitalize on. While the U.S. finished the match in a 1-1 draw with Honduras, Diskerud earned SBI USMNT Man of the Match.

The 24-year-old midfielder beat out Altidore, Jones, and Greg Garza for this game’s honors.
