US gets friendly with Honduras

In the first of a number of pre-World Cup friendlies, US Soccer will welcome Honduras to Los Angeles on 23 January for an international friendly.

“Obviously we know the quality of the Honduran team very well and we think the match is a great way to start the year as we commence preparations for the World Cup,’ said US head coach Bob Bradley. ‘With both teams working toward finalizing their rosters for South Africa, we expect it will be a very competitive game.’

Playing the Central American team four times in 2009, the USA came away with a perfect 4-0-0 record and will look to improve on that number next month.

The game will be aired on Fox Soccer Channel and will kick off at 6pm PT and 9pm ET.
