HONDURAS LINES UP
USMNT heads for south Florida
CHICAGO - The U.S. Men's National Team will continue its new cycle for Russia 2018 when it hosts Honduras at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton,Fla., four days after a match with Ecuador in East Hartford, Conn.
"Honduras has proved that they are one of the top teams in CONCACAF," said U.S. Head Coach Jurgen Klinsmann. "As we begin our preparation for the Gold Cup, this is a great opportunity for our players to see the type of opponent they will face next summer."
Honduras competed in the last two FIFA World Cups, the first time in team history it has reached the tournament in consecutive cycles. The United States holds a 14-4-3 all-time record against the Catrachos. The teams last met in a semifinal of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, where the USA collected a 3-1 win on the way to capturing the tournament title.
