World Cup 2010 Qualifying: USA vs. Honduras


USA vs. Honduras Live Stream

The United States men’s national soccer team can clinch a World Cup berth with a victory against Honduras tonight, but it won’t be easy.

First, it is extremely hot and humid in Central America. Second, Los Catrachos are perfect at home during the past two years of qualifying. Political turmoil in Honduras could also add to the sense of unease.

Estadio Olimpico certainly won’t be empty tonight. A sellout crowd is projected and a total of 1,150 police are expected to be patrolling the stadium’s grounds.

Fulham winger Clint Dempsey will miss the match due to a shoulder injury, and his playing status is still uncertain for the Yanks’ final qualifier against Costa Rica on Wednesday.

The match kicks-off at 10:00 p.m. ET.

Meanwhile Hull City striker Jozy Altidore has been named on a three man shortlist for the coveted US national soccer team`s “Player of the Year” award.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Altidore will try to claim the prize against Los Angeles Galaxy’s Landon Donovan and Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard.

The winner will be announced on October 20th.

UPDATE: Team USA clinched its sixth straight World Cup berth after a dramatic 3-2 win against Honduras on the road. Conor Casey scored two goals in the second half, and Landon Donovan added another for the Americans.
