The U-17 Men's national team fell to the Reggae Boyz of Jamaica last Wednesday to the tune of 1-0. In so doing, the young men strayed from the fluid, attacking, creative style of soccer that has been a hallmark of their age group, instead falling into the mediocre, unremarkable style..

I always love it when one of the top UK soccer writers turns his or her attention to the US national team. Why? Because their often unbiased and well-trained eye will point out obvious, painful truths and occasionally reasons for optimism. One of the best things we forget as US fans about US players and the US team is we give a good effort for the full 90 minutes.

USA vs. Honduras: Match Review - Yanks fall 2-1 in deserved loss to open Hexagonal

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

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.

Full post game analysis will follow, but a few quick thoughts on the Yanks 3-1 win over Guatemala This roster did what it was built to do. If there's one thing Jürgen Klinsmann has shown a talent for, it's tailoring his roster to his opponents. This roster was built to power over and through packed defenses, and it did just that.

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.

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.

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.

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.
