The goal is simple: Get out with a draw. And man for man, Klinsi's side has more talent. But Boniek, Bengtson, and Espinoza are dangerous enough to cause problems.

Call me crazy, jingoist or deluded – you may be right. But I think the US has their defense in order, their possession in check and their passing game locked in. The question is the finishing, of course, but I think the Yanks are about to pull the biggest stunner of the Hex's opening day. Well, unless Jamaica ... nah.

The US get on the board first, but can’t make it hold in front of that crowd. They’ll take the point on the road though, and get out of San Pedro Sula post-haste.

This Honduras team has mostly been together for a month already thanks to the Copa Centroamericana. Match sharpness combined with home field advantage is a tough combo to top in CONCACAF.

Los Catrachos have the players to "create soccer" and goal chances that the USMNT does not (Zusi is the closest thing to a playmaker since JFT is likely start on the bench). Also, the Bocanegra-Cameron pairing in central defense will prove to be the weakest link for the US.

The US hasn't exactly been explosive under Jurgen Klinsmann, and I expect that trend to continue in what may be the Hex's most challenging venue outside of Azteca. Pragmatism is the name of the game for the Americans in San Pedro Sula, and they'll be more than satisfied with a point after holding off a late surge from Los Catrachos.

Honduras is coming back from Copa Centroamericana, where they had a little bit more time than the US to play together competitively. It also helped Suarez understand where his squad needed improvement. Even though, the US players have more international experience, they didn’t have enough time to prepare all together for this game.
