USA vs Honduras takes place in their World Cup 2014 Qualifying clash on Tuesday night, with the United States clear favorites to claim all the points on offer and progress in their quest for an automatic qualification spot. The game will kick off at 9 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Tonight's game takes place in Utah, and this is a big chance for the United States to make good progress in their qualification campaign. Team USA is already at the top of the Hexagonal with 10 points, and if they can convert that into 13 points by the end of tonight then, with only four games remaining they will be in a very strong position to confirm their automatic qualification soon.
Honduras is currently in fourth position after their five games, which is only a playoff spot. If they remain in fourth at the end of the qualifications then they will need to playoff against New Zealand for a place in the World Cup Finals 2014 in Brazil.
Although this isn't necessarily a must win game for Honduras they will be feeling the pressure with Panama being just a point behind them in fifth place. So if they can they would ideally like to steal a win here tonight to majorly boost their own automatic qualification efforts, or at the very least claim a share of the points on offer with a draw.
An away draw against the United States would prove to be a valuable one, however, that may be easier said than done for Honduras, as their side is ravaged by absentees.
They have players out injured, some suspended, and one has even simply walked out on the squad after a bust up with the national team manager. All the disruption is not ideal preparation for the team, and they will have pulled off a mini miracle if they manage to claim any points at all tonight.
