Honduras heads Group B in the Copa de Oro (Gold Cup), with two of their three matches garnering wins in the tournament’s opening. Honduras vs Haiti was encouraging, with a 2-0, and in Honduras vs El Salvador, they scored 1-0. Honduras lost the final matchup against Trinidad and Tobago 2-0. Honduras vs Costa Rica in the quarterfinals earned the Honduran BiColor a 1-0 advantage.
In the past four matches, Honduras has scored each goal through a different teammate: Marvin Chavez, Jorge Claros, Rony Martinez, and Andy Najar.
The USA has been playing well, winning their four straight Gold Cup competitions in a row. They’ve scored nine straight wins if you count all their matches since the loss (4-2) to Belgium in the May friendly game, so they are due for a fall ;).
