Stanley Chou

Remember loyal US Soccer supporters knowing your enemy is as just important as understanding your own forces. The US Men's National Team begins CONCACF hexagonal qualifying today against Honduras is what's expected to be a very tough match.

You're probably wondering though, why is this going to be a tough match? What challenges will this Honduras side pose for the United States? Since we here love to take care of our readers, we've got you covered thanks to our DC United blog Black and Red United's excellent scouting report on Honduras.

It's fair to say that the current squad is not as good as the team that we saw in the last Hexagonal, but the main issue is simply experience. The current group is more talented than the one it replaces, but is also far younger. Given the increasing number that are making it in Europe and MLS earlier in their careers, this is a team that is good today and will probably be the best Honduran squad of all time when qualifying for Russia 2018 begins.

This Honduras squad is on the rise and would love nothing more that to knock off the USA today and accelerate their timetable. Overcoming injuries to Emilio Izaguirre and Andy Najar could open the door for the USA but this should still be a very tough match. So read up and get yourself properly prepared.
