U.S. 0 Honduras 2
We’ll let former U.S. National Team Coach Bruce Arena sum this one up so far:
“I think the best team is ahead,” he said. “Honduras is a much more experienced team at the international level and it shows.”
Stats don’t always tell the complete story in soccer but this one does: The U.S. has zero shots on goal, Honduras three (the official stats say two, but I don’t believe that’s correct) – and, of course, they scored on two of them.
Arena, BTW, was up in the press box at half time to react to being named to the National Soccer hall of Fame.
“It’s a great individual accomplishment,” he said, while observing hundreds of people throughout his career helped him achieve the honor.
Updated: Central defender Clarence Goodson has come in at the half for striker Jeff Cunningham to plug the gap left by Jimmy Conrad’s sending off.
