U.S. 1 Honduras 3
This one is mercifully over (if you’re a U.S. fan).
Conor Casey shooting wide in second half stoppage time with only the goalkeeper to beat pretty much summed up this poor effort.
A crowd of 18,626 – the largest to see a U.S. friendly at Home Depot Center – witnessed this one and it’s hard to think of an American player who stood out tonight (although Robbie Rogers was pretty active and did hit the post).
In 2002, 13 of the players in the U.S. January camp ended up on that year’s World Cup team and four years later 10 of the campers went to Germany.
Less than a handful who played in this one – perhaps Rogers, Bornstein and Feilhaber – will head to South Africa.
We’ll see if Bob Bradley says anything of note in the post-game press conference.
