USA vs Honduras Match Analysis and Prediction

On Wednesday, the United States will wrap up its penultimate World Cup qualification window by facing Honduras at Allianz Field in Saint Paul, Minnesota, with kickoff at 3:30 am.

Both Honduras and the United States lost tonight in qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup, with Honduras falling 2-0 to El Salvador and the United States playing to a disappointing scoreless draw against Canada.

US Coach Gregg Berhalter was happy with his team’s performance despite their loss to Canada, as they maintained a spot in the top three, only ahead of Panama by one point. Berhalter praised his players for their running and pressure despite this minor setback.

The United States failed to win the Gold Cup on Sunday, failing to beat a Canadian game team in a match where the Americans led in virtually every statistical category.

The narrow turf field in Hamilton did not seem to suit the U.S., who, despite having the ball for much of that contest, rarely threatened Milan Borjan’s goal. However, the Red Star Belgrade keeper produced an outstanding save late in the first half from a Weston McKennie header.

After failing to win a sixth consecutive contest this past weekend, Honduras will not be shaping up at the 2018 World Cup.

As they fell to defeat against El Salvador, Honduras had a handful of turnovers in the game and let their opponents have way too much space to run counterattacks.
