Happy America day, Americaland! Today, the United States takes on Honduras in the second of two friendlies this international break. All five of the World Cup veterans that were called into the team after the Ecuador match are in the starting XI for this one, though not in the most orthodox way.
Here's the starting XI. Spot something weird?
Honduras: Escober; Crisanto, Figueroa, Bernardez, Izaguirre; Claros, Garrido, Boniek Garcia, Najar; Elis, Rojas— FOX Soccer Trax (@FOXSoccerTrax) October 14, 2014
Yep, that's Jermaine Jones starting in the center of defense. We talked about this possibility earlier in the day, but not everyone believed it. Well, it's a reality. A scary, scary reality. Also, the diamond is back, with Michael Bradley at the tip, so the wingers can take a seat. Sorry, DeAndre Yedlin.
Kickoff is at 8 p.m. ET. You can catch the game on ESPN and UniMas, as well as the streaming services of both of those networks.
