Watched it on the computer.  Phew, I was devastated when we gave up that goal then three minutes later I was running laps around my house screaming "USA".  Our chances to qualify just jumped to 94%, and we have two home games coming up which we should win.  You'll be able to see these on ESPN lol.  Glad to see Jozy score in consecutive games, it's like we finally figured out when we get the ball in the zone to OUR BEST PLAYER, he'll put it in the back of the net more times than not.  That was awesome and we're sitting pretty.  Let's go Panama.

As I have previously stated, Altidore is key for us- if he can turn it on up top- we aren't half terrible

Ive been on altidore's nuts for like 6 damn years. He is a physical beast. If he used his strength like wambach does he could dominate competition. Its not neccessarily that he plays scared. Its more tenative or not demanding the ball. It is very easy in soccer to dissappear for long stretches of time. This happens to him way too much for his talent level. I think he is lazy IMHO

Jozy Altidore's form has been incredible the last few weeks.  He's playing with exceptional pace, and making great decisions with the ball.  He's making things a lot easier for his teammates with the way he's raised his game....

USA got another good win last night over Honduras. Honduras is definitely an underrated team with guys like Espinoza and Palacios.

 

Altidore recorded the only goal in the game extending his goal streak to four games.

 

Jermaine Jones returned from his concussion and picked up another yellow card in the process.

 

Klinsmann also moved Fabian Johnson back to defense.

 

If you missed the game, here is a recap.

It wasn't pretty, but they got the three points and that's all that matters.  US Men's National team is all but guaranteed a spot in Brazil now (99.6% chance of qualifying), so that's really all you can ask for at this point....

Honduras' attack was about as effective as a falcid member. Totally useless. A tie or loss there would have undone everything. I said going in we needed all 9 points. They got them, I would love for mexico to struggle and miss out somehow.

To be fair, there was a blatant handball on a Dempsey header (that was going into the net) that wasn't called, but yea the attack was putrid last night.  Sloppy passing, and giveaways in terrible positions put this game in doubt much longer than it should have been.  Had Honduras been able to finish chances last night we're probably not sitting here talking about an ugly win.  Still a win is a win, and when we're talking about USA Soccer I'll take it anyway I can get it....

We looked a lot better the last 25-30 mins... Zusi and Jozy are on fire. Really sloppy last night but we got the 1-0 win. I'm thrilled. What a great stretch its been for the USMNT. Even if Donovan does come back there's no way in hell he starts the way Zusi and Johnson have been playing
