Rose City Roundup: Honduras Edition

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It's a big night for the USMNT, who play their last qualifier until September. Tonight could give U.S. fans an idea of whether the team may finally be clicking for real, or whether they're going to keep being frustratingly inconsistent. A win could also give the U.S. a chance to pull farther away from their competition in the Hex, depending on how the Costa Rica-Panama game shakes out.

Enjoy today's news!
