Matchday: Gold Cup Semifinals

Hey everyone, I'm about to head out to Soldier Field for tonight's action.  I'll be updating this post throughout the night with starting lineups and some commentary so keep your eyes open for that.  Feel free to share any thoughts you have about either of tonight's matches in the comments section below.

Enjoy the games.

  • After a two hour drive I am finally situated in the press box at a rainy Soldier Field. No word on any lineups for the U.S. - Honduras game as of yet but I will post them as soon as I know.

    Right now the crowd appears pretty sparse. However, the main attraction tonight is the Mexico - Costa Rica game so more fans should fill in in the lead up to 9 o'clock.

  • Here are the lineups for the U.S. - Honduras match:

    U.S.:

    --------------------Perkins------------------

    Heaps--------Marshall-----Goodson-------Pearce

    Holden------Beckerman-----Pause---------Rogers

    ------------Ching--------Arnaud---------------

    Bench: Clark, Parkhurst, Cronin, Cooper, Quaranta, Evans, Busch

    Honduras:

    Not sure about their formation but here are the starters...

    Escobar (GK), Osman Chavez, Norales, Mejia, Marvin Chavez, Acevedo, Carlos Palacios, Martinez, Medina, Valadares, Costly

    Bench: Molina, Johnny Palacios, Garcia, Lalin, Canales (GK), Espinoza, Welcome

  • The U.S. got the win tonight, defeating Honduras 2-0 to advance to Sunday's Gold Cup final. I'll have a full post up relatively soon but until then feel free to share your thoughts on the match in the comments section.
