The United States Men’s National Team hosts Honduras on Wednesday in Minnesota as it tries to hang on to its spot in 2022 Concacaf World Cup Qualifying. The USMNT (5-3-2) comes in off a 2-0 loss to Canada on Sunday. It can’t afford to slip up again, as it sits just one point ahead of fourth-place Panama, with the top three qualifying automatically. Team USA is in the No. 2 spot, tied on points with Mexico, but it will need to have a sense of urgency. The Americans are on home turf at Allianz Field, home of Minnesota United FC, and faces last-place Honduras (0-3-7), but Los Catrachos won’t go down easily.
Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.

Why you should back the USMNT
Honduras has lost six straight qualifying matches, including a 4-1 setback to Team USA in September. The Americans took over in the second half after a sluggish start, getting goals from Antonee Robinson, Ricardo Pepi, Brenden Aaronson and Sebastian Lletget in the rout. The 19-year-old Pepi has three goals in eight matches. Star attacker Christian Pulisic (17 goals in 44 appearances) is trying to find his footing but has been an electric playmaker when he is on his game.
The USMNT is 6-2-0 against Honduras since 2013, outscoring them 19-5. It has a 15-3 advantage in goals in the last seven meetings on American soil, where Team USA is unbeaten in its last 19 fixtures. Weston McKennie has been the lynchpin of the attack in recent games, and he has scored eight goals in 30 internationals matches.
Why you should back Honduras
Honduras has been eliminated from a chance at qualifying for its fourth World Cup (1982, 2010 and 2014), but it will try to be the spoiler. It is a veteran team with five players who have at least 50 international appearances. It is led by captain and defender Maynor Figueroa, the team’s all-time leader with 180 matches under his belt. Bryan Acosta of the Colorado Rapids and Alfredo Mejia team up in a strong midfield that should help the Hondurans control the ball.
Los Catrachos held possession for 53 percent of that September match and had an 18-12 advantage in shots but put just three on target. The Hondurans led at halftime, getting a goal from Bryan Mora in the 27th minute before Team USA stormed back. Romell Quioto and Alberth Elis, each with one qualifying goal, are overdue to break through. Honduras has gone without a victory just twice before in qualifying (1962 and 1990) and will fight hard to salvage some pride.
