    Howard came out of his net & got burnt. The guy is a insane fool. Honduras knew he will do that & they waited & Howard lost his patience & left his net unguarded. This ain't EPL or MLS. USA on thin ice now.

    We are bunkering back on Honduras now? I thought we were going to play an offensive style under Klinsmann? Hey, but we just had a historic win vs Mexico in a friendly!!!

    The one time Howard stayed in his net he got burnt on a bicycle kick. USA are so predictable & not in shape. They looked drunk. 3 on 1 breaks good god the ball watching.
