USA TODAY Sports

Come chat with your best internet friends as the United States takes on Honduras in the semifinals of the Gold Cup.

Happy America day, Americaland! Today, the United States men's national team takes on Honduras in the semifinals of the Gold Cup. We're playing the early game and the winner will face the winner of the late game -- Mexico vs. Panama -- in the Gold Cup final on Sunday.

Here's your lineup.

There are some mildly surprising changes here. A lot of people expected to see Stuart Holden start until we saw the pictures of the terrible pitch. Apparently Jurgen Klinsmann and Stu are willing to risk it. Alejandro Bedoya getting the nod over Joey Beers is a bit of a surprise. Eddie Johnson getting a start after his great sub appearance is not.

Here's the Honduras lineup:

Kickoff is at 7 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. local time from Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. You can catch the game on FOX Soccer or Univision Deportes, depending on your announcer preferences and what channels you get.
