[HONDURAS-USA] Honduras coach Luis Suarez named his starting lineup that will feature four current and two former MLS players for Wednesday's Hexagonal opener against the United States (TV: BeIN Sport, BeIN Sport en Espanol, 4 p.m. ET).

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann was less forthcoming about his plans. Only three players -- Tim Howard, Michael Bradley and Clint Dempsey -- would be considered locks to start though Timothy Chandler and perhaps Omar Gonzalez could get starts in their World Cup qualifying debuts for the USA.

HONDURAS-USA
TV: BeIN Sport, BeIN Sport en Espanol
Kickoff: 4 pm ET
City: San Pedro Sula

Worth Remembering:
-- The USA beat Honduras, 1-0, the last time they met in October 2011. The win was the first for Klinsmann as U.S. national team coach and came in his fourth game in charge.
-- The USA has won all three times it has met Honduras in San Pedro Sula for World Cup qualifiers, in 1965, 2001 and 2009.
