The next international tournament of the summer kicks off with the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
CONCACAF GOLD CUP
USA AH-1.5 to beat Honduras @ 2.10 (888Sport) – 3 points
United States come into this tournament with some superb form behind them beating Mexico, Netherlands, Germany, Guatemala in their last 4 friendlies heading into this fixture. Klinsmann has really shaped up the team to play a very European style, focussing on defense and then counter attacking with strong wingers on the sides. They have smashed 2 goals in each of the games, 12 in total to really showcase their offense even against the great German side. With a front 3 of Dempsey, Altidore and Wondolowski; you can be sure that the Americans have enough firepower to dish out a beating on their opponents tonight.
Honduras come into this game not in the best of form struggling to find a win against teams who are ranked higher than them such as Mexico, Brazil, Paraguay, Venezuela etc. In fact their only victories in their last 15 matches have come against El Salvador, French Guyana and Nicaragua. Hardly the stuff of a team who will cause a bother for their strong American opponents tonight.
The USA have lost only once to Honduras in the last 5 meetings, but this American squad is much stronger and well nurtured then before under Klinsmann. I expect the American to put in a strong goal scoring effort and win this match by at least 2 goals.
