For the U.S. Men’s National Team, it was another lead squandered as the Yanks settled for draw again Tuesday against Honduras. Jermaine Jones made a new appearance as a center back while Mix Diskerud again shined in the midfield, earning SBI Man of the Match honors again as a starter.
SBI’s Franco Panizo was on the scene in Boca Raton, Florida to hear coach Jurgen Klinsmann’s thoughts beforehand on merging his veterans with the young players he has been looking at. Newcomer Miguel Ibarra who earned a surprise call-up from second-division NASL said he was feeling more comfortable with the national team experience and pace.
And in Major League Soccer action, it appears the San Jose Earthquakes will have a new coach — and the Houston Dynamo will be losing one. Dominic Kinnear, current Dynamo coach, is set to join the Quakes next season, according to reports.
Here is a recap of all the stories featured on SBI Tuesday:
