OK so here's the deal. Last Friday's match between the United States and Costa Rica didn't quite go as planned for Klinsmann and his Yanks. In fact, it went about as poorly as it could have gone. The US fell 3-1 to Los Ticos and ended their 12-match winning streak. But while the result was poor, and the play even worse, the biggest losses of the evening came in the suspensions of Jozy Altidore, Matt Besler, and Geoff Cameron.

Immediately after the United States Men's National Team's 2-1 loss to Honduras back on February 6 in San Pedro Sula, many of us saw a team in crisis. The Yanks not only lost, they were completely outplayed by the Catrachos. Fast forward to today, and those memories are nigh unrecognizable. The USMNT sit top of the table at the midpoint of the Hexagonal, CONCACAF's final round of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup, and three of their remaining five games will be on American soil.

Honduras vs. USA: Bengtson and friends down the Yanks 2-1

So, that happened. The United States dropped a chance to get off to a really strong start in World Cup Qualifying last night, squandering a first-half lead to get dropped 2-1 by Honduras. Thanks to a pair of draws in the other games, the Yanks aren't rooted in last place too badly, but it was still pretty awful to see Los Catrachos come back and win, even in a tough road qualifier at San Pedro Sula.

It's time for the Hex! The United States is about to take on Honduras, and while the Yanks' roster features several former New England Revolution players, no one will draw more attention from Fort fans than Los Catrachos' striker Jerry Bengtson. This is a good opportunity for all of us to see him in action for his national team, where he appears to be scoring all the goals.

USA vs. Canada 2013: Yanks play awfully, draw 0-0

Man, that was tough. Tough, as in "tough to watch." The United States looked a winnable - nay, easy - game right in the eyes and promptly played the most boring, emotionless, and unexciting match of their lives. It wasn't just dull, it was mind-numbing. Honestly, if I'm Canada, I'm a little upset that I didn't steal a win in this game.

Soccer fans across the fruited plain were riveted by last Friday’s World Cup qualifier in Commerce City.

In a word, that sucked. The U.S. Men's National Team dropped the first game of the final round of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, losing 2-1 to Honduras. This despite going up 1-0 late in the first half through Clint Dempsey. Even when ahead 0-1, the Americans were generally outplayed over the entire 90 minutes, and the Hondurans deservedly went ahead on Jerry Bengston's 78th minute game-winner after a miscommunication between Geoff Cameron and Tim Howard allowed Oscar Boniek Garcia to square for Bengston, who ran past a ball-watching Omar Gonzalez to slot the winner home into an open net.
