Domination in Dallas: Donovan and Deep US Continue Historic Run in Rout of Honduras

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon The pitch was hideous, sanded over slabs of sod laid on concrete. The fans- there were 80,000 of them- were largely decked out in green, red and white. Despite the field, the venue, monstrous high-definition scoreboard gleaming and field-level luxury boxes brimming, was befitting of the moment: a semifinal with a date at venerable Soldier Field […]

A Nine Point Trip? Rematch Against Depleted Honduras Will Tell Story: TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy The US enters the Honduras match at Rio Tinto Stadium on the best run of consistent form under Jurgen Klinsmann thus far.

Honduras 2, USA 1: Vexing Opener to Hex For Klinsmann’s Men

In Mind-Numbing Draw, Few Positives, Plenty Questions

Tweet   Neil W. Blackmon The United States played a unique new style last night in Houston: let’s call it anti-total football. In so doing, they played to a scoreless draw against a weak, MLS-reserve heavy Canadian side under an interim manager, and doubtlessly left Jurgen Klinsmann shaking his head about the options that are […]
