The Zygo Soccer Report at related • 0 views

The U.S. Men's Under-23 National Team didn't make it to the Olympics, but that hasn't stopped one team from stepping forward to capture the appreciation of plenty of American soccer fans at these Olympic Games.

Honduras has put together a dream run into the Olympic quarterfinals, and with four MLS players on the roster, it has become easy to root for them (and let's face it, not many American fans are going to root for Mexico).
