Gold Cup 2013: Honduras v USMNT Highlights

EJ gets another (seems like he's refound his form finally) and Landycakes scores two... neither from the PK spot! The second for LD was particularly sweet as it came less than 1 min after Honduras' Media scored to bring it to 2-1.  Landy's 2nd put the spread back to 2 goals and the US rolls to the finals, 3-1 winners.

Now for those of you who didn't catch the match live, Klinsmann managed to get himself sent off late in the game.  How, you might ask?  For questioning the Costa Rican ref's lack of eyesight  (never mind a elbow EJ got to the face in the box and we were denied a pk) when Beasley's leg apparently turned into metal and attracted some hidden magnet in one of the Honduran player's feet. 

I swear, at the rate Beasley gets kicked and fouled, I'd be surprised if he's still able to walk at 50.  It might be understandable on a thug level to foul this guy so much but this is like having the record for getting hit by the most pitches in baseball.  It has no reward and it hurts like hell.

Winner of Panama and the US match gets to face the winner of the 2015 Gold Cup for the right to play in the Confederations Cup in Russia, 2017.

  1. I thought it was Holden that took an elbow to the face in the box. How the heck did I get those two confused?
