Matchday 14: Messi, Argentina in round of 16

Five Aside

Despite losses, Honduras holding on


Jose Juan Vazquez stars for Mexico in shaky match vs. Honduras

Mexico striker Javier Hernandez broke his collarbone as Mexico and Honduras settled for a goalless draw in their friendly match in Houston.
Mexico's Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez broke his collarbone in a friendly against Honduras.

Worries continue to mount for Mexico before the start of the Gold Cup. The team hasn't won in its past seven matches and star striker Javier Hernandez appears to be doubtful for the upcoming tournament after leaving Mexico's 0-0 draw with Honduras with a collarbone injury.

Wednesday night proved that with a more defensive and physical approach, a squad like Honduras can scrape by against Mexico. Los Catrachos did an excellent job absorbing El Tri's attack and shut down Mexico with their aggressive...

Hernandez injured as Mexico draw against physical Honduras

Mexico's Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez broke his collarbone in a friendly against Honduras.

HOUSTON -- Mexico finalized preparation for the Gold Cup with a 0-0 tie against Honduras in a scrappy game overshadowed by an injury to Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez. Here are three observations from Houston's NRG Stadium.

1. Chicharito injury a major concern for El Tri

Striker Hernandez has looked one of Mexico's brightest players since the team got together in Mexico City to prepare for the Gold Cup and had finally wrestled the starting spot back from Oribe Peralta. Now there is a good chance...

Honduras has potential to serve Mexico another embarrassment

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop feels that Mexico will claim the 2015 Gold Cup crown over the United States.

To a certain extent, Honduras was the forgotten CONCACAF team in last year's World Cup, although that makes sense considering the team's performance was entirely forgettable. The Catrachos lost all three games in group play, falling to France, Ecuador and Switzerland. That was even worse than the team's previous performance in the 2010 edition of the tournament, where they actually managed a draw against the Swiss. Honduras has yet to win a single match in the sport's most prestigious tournament....

Honduras boss Jorge Luis Pinto sets sights on CONCACAF Gold Cup

Jorge Luis Pinto and his Honduras side will meet the United States on July 7 in their Gold Cup opener.

HOUSTON -- Almost exactly one year ago, Colombian Jorge Luis Pinto became the first coach since Bruce Arena with the U.S. in 2002 to lead a CONCACAF nation to the quarterfinals of the World Cup.

How things have changed for him since. Instead of being given the chance to build on his final-eight finish with Costa Rica at Brazil 2014, an ugly and bitter divorce ensued, but Pinto returned to coaching with Honduras in December. When you listen to him speak at length, you can't help feeling CONCACAF's...

Honduran goalkeeper sent off for patting opponent, 'world is laughing'

The decision to send off a goalkeeper for patting an opposing striker on the backside has turned the Honduran football league into a worldwide laughing stock, so says the director of first division club CD Marathon.

In what surely must be a footballing first, the game between Marathon and Real Sociedad in the Honduran top flight on Oct. 12 saw Marathon goalkeeper Junior Morales sent off by the referee for gently patting the backside of Real striker Eris Hernandez.

Having scooped the ball up inside...

U.S. grades: Mix Diskerud among Yanks' top performers vs. Honduras

ESPN FC's Ian Darke, Taylor Twellman and Alexi Lalas break down Jermaine Jones' performance against Honduras at the centre of defence.

The early part of the World Cup cycle is a time for lessons. The U.S. national team learned a few in a 1-1 tie with Honduras.

U.S. striker Jozy Altidore -- who was raised in Boca Raton, Florida, the site of Tuesday's match -- appeared set to celebrate a happy homecoming, as he scored early in the first half. But Maynor Figueroa nodded home an 86th minute equalizer to give the visitors a deserved draw.

Overall, it proved to be an uneven performance from the U.S. squad. The Americans started brightly...
