Luckily, the count on the yellow cards is one for each side. Capt. Jimmy Conrad received one in the sixth minute for clipping Walter Martinez (F) just after the Robbie Rogers corner kick. For Honduras, Jerry Palacios (F) got called for a yellow for a challenge at the top of the box during the eight minute.

Now we’re down a man as Jimmy Conrad just picked up his second yellow. What the…?
