Following Friday’s defeat against Costa Rica, the U.S. Men’s National Team faces a vital World Cup qualifier against Honduras on Tuesday night.

The USMNT lineup features seven changes from Friday’s match, including Brad Guzan in goal while Omar Gonzalez and Matt Besler enter at centerback. Jordan Morris and Clint Dempsey join the fray at striker while Kellyn Acosta anchors the midfield and DaMarcus Beasley replaces Jorge Villafana at left back.

Enjoy the action.


  1. Absolutely no midfield play. I sure hope that the young kids get better fast. Williams might help some but MB isnt going to sit as long as Arena is coaching. There just isnt any quality in the middle of the park. Yes the mistake was in the back, but there was no pressure on the Honduras midfielders while in possession. I am discouraged by the next years’ prospects. I hope i am wrong

  2. the game and performance are what they are, but that result, in that environment, earned late and from behind, and all these whiny sour grapes here. LOL Pathetic 🙂

  3. the football gods let the USMNT off the hook today. You would think Dempsey and Morris never played together… both of them absolutely disappeared. Once we saw the long ball wasn’t going to work, we should have dropped it and started putting some passes together. Instead of getting better as the game went on it got worse.

  4. Not sure we deserved the draw, but at this point you take whatever you can get. And whatever happened to playing out of the back? It seemed like every goal kick ended up as a turnover. Guzan’s distribution was horrible.

  5. I think I mentioned how we needed someone hungry and clinical in the box…

    I starting it right here. Arena needs to go. Such poor decisions. Including Pulisic positioning v CR.

  6. Also, I could add replace Bradley with Zusi and the comment stands. You simply cannot field this many slow of foot players.

  7. One day, maybe five years from now, a few American soccer writers will realize, a couple play here or there notwithsstanding, Bradley is done at this level. He is pretty much nothing more than a traffic cone. No one in Concacaf is remotely afraid of Bradley. They know they can glide past him with ease, and they definitely know he couldn’t beat a turtle while carrying the ball.

  8. We are just making it easy for them. Long balls with no desire to win in air or second ball. Honduras is playing ball on ground but we can’t. Not even trying to play out of back. No connection from back to middle. Bad coaching. Bad strategy. Bad players. Don’t deserve to win or go to WC.

    • Can’t discredit the atmosphere/climate, and also can’t forget how good Altidore was that day. Dempsey and Pulisic did the damage, but he was a key cog.
