US MNT Ready For Semifinal Match Against Honduras at 6 pm CT on Thursday July 23 at Soldier Field

U.S. Men's National Team Game Notes
USA vs. Honduras
2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup

PLACE IN THE FINAL BECKONS: The U.S. Men's National Team continues its quest for three consecutive Gold Cup titles when it faces Honduras in the semifinals of the 2009 edition at Soldier Field on Thursday, July 23, at 6 p.m. CT live on Fox Soccer Channel, TeleFutura and the Futbol de Primera Radio Networks. Honduras presents a familiar foe for Bob Bradley's team, as the meeting on Thursday will be the third time the two sides have locked horns during this busy summer. The USA dispatched Honduras 2-0 in the group stage of this tournament behind goals from Santino Quaranta and Brian Ching on July 8 at RFK Stadium. Prior to the FIFA Confederations Cup, the two teams met in a crucial World Cup qualifier. The game, which was also played at Soldier Field, was a gripping encounter, with the USA coming from behind to win a FIFA World Cup qualifier for the first time in 24 years. That 2-1 victory will seem a distant memory now for Bob Bradley, who has entrusted his defense of the Gold Cup title to a vastly different group than the one which took the field on June 6 in Chicago.

U.S ROSTER AGAINST HONDURAS: U.S. head coach Bob Bradley will have 19 players available for selection against Honduras on Thursday night. Goalkeeper Luis Robles departed the team immediately after the game in Philadelphia, while goalkeeper Jon Busch and defender Michael Parkhurst joined the team in Chicago. Busch has been on the Gold Cup roster throughout the tournament; however, this will be the first game he will be available for selection in the 18-man roster. Parkhurst has made two appearances in the 2009 Gold Cup, starting against Honduras and Haiti, but he returned to his club in Denmark for the opening weekend of their season. Eighteen of the 19 players have featured in the Gold Cup thus far, with Busch the only player yet to make an appearance.

U.S. Men’s National Team Roster – July 19-23 in Chicago
GOALKEEPERS (2): Jon Busch (Chicago Fire), Troy Perkins (Valerenga IF),
DEFENDERS (6): Jimmy Conrad (Kansas City Wizards), Clarence Goodson (IK Start), Jay Heaps (New England Revolution), Chad Marshall (Columbus Crew), Michael Parkhurst (FC Nordsjaelland), Heath Pearce (Out of Contract)
MIDFIELDERS (8): Davy Arnaud (Kansas City Wizards), Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Colin Clark (Colorado Rapids), Sam Cronin (Toronto FC), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders FC), Stuart Holden (Houston Dynamo), Logan Pause (Chicago Fire), Robbie Rogers (Columbus Crew)
FORWARDS (3): Brian Ching (Houston Dynamo), Kenny Cooper (FC Dallas), Santino Quaranta (D.C. United)

FINAL FOUR SET: The field of 12 teams has been whittled down to four after this past weekend's quarterfinals. Mexico's 4-0 victory against Haiti assured El Tri of a second consecutive trip to the semifinals. Costa Rica, who obliterated Guadeloupe by a 5-1 scoreline, is making its first appearance in the final four since 2003. Honduras, meanwhile, are in the semis for the first time in four years. In 2005 Los Catrachos beat Colombia and knocked out Costa Rica as they finished tied for third.

CONCACAF Gold Cup Schedule and Results

NINE TIES A RECORD: Nine different players have scored the ten U.S. goals through four games at the Gold Cup. The feat ties a U.S. record for a Gold Cup competition set in 2007 when nine players also found the net en route to a tournament title. Until Stuart Holden became the first repeat scorer, the first seven marked the first time that seven straight goals in a Gold Cup have come from seven different players. Freddy Adu, Stuart Holden, Robbie Rogers, Charlie Davies, Santino Quaranta, Brian Ching and Davy Arnaud set the U.S. record for most different players to score in the group matches, breaking the record of six players scoring in matches against Guatemala, Trinidad & Tobago and El Salvador in the group stage of the 2007 tournament. Rounding out the group of U.S. goalscorers are Kyle Beckerman and Kenny Cooper, who both netted against Panama in the quarterfinal. 


  • Goalkeeper Jon Busch has joined up with Bob Bradley's squad following the departure of goakeeper Luis Robles.
  • Defender Michael Parkhurst returns to the squad after a brief stint with his club team meant he was absent from the squad that beat Panama in the quarterfinals.
  • Stuart Holden leads the U.S. team in scoring with two goals after four games. Following Mexico's four-goal barrage against Haiti, Miguel Sabaha leads all players with four goals.
  • The U.S. has advanced to the semifinals in the last five editions of the tournament. The last time the U.S. missed out on a semifinal place was in 2000 when Bruce Arena's team fell to Colombia in a quarterfinal shootout.
  • The win against Panama stretches the USA's unbeaten streak at home against CONCACAF opponents to 57 games. The impressive run dates back to Sept. 1, 2001, when Honduras defeated the U.S. 3-2 in Washington, D.C.
  • The U.S. will be facing Honduras for the 15th time, and has a 9-2-3 edge in the series.
  • The extra time victory against Panama was the first time the USA played more than 90 minutes since the Gold Cup final on July 24, 2005, against Panama. The U.S. won that game in penalty kicks, with Santino Quaranta accounting for one of the USA’s three tallies.
  • The two sides met as recently as two weeks ago in CONCACAF Gold Cup group play. The USA won 2-0 behind goals from Quaranta and Brian Ching.
  • The last meeting against Honduras at Chicago's Soldier Field came June 6, a 2-1 win for the U.S. in a FIFA World Cup qualifier.
  • The U.S. is 3-0-1 against Honduras in the Gold Cup, including a 0-0 tie in the inaugural Gold Cup final in 1991 that the U.S. won 4-3 on penalties.
  • In eight CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinal appearances, the United States is 5-2-1. The lone tie came in 2002, when the U.S. and Canada played out a scoreless draw. The USA subsequently won in penalty kicks.
  • The USA’s last appearance in Chicago for a Gold Cup match was the 2007 final on June 24, 2007, when the U.S. came from behind to beat Mexico 2-1. The victory earned the United States. a place in the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup, where they finished as runner up to Brazil after defeating No. 1-ranked Spain in the semifinal.
  • The U.S. holds a 37-4-6 all-time record in the regional event and has outscored opponents 91-29.
  • With Luis Robles, Jay Heaps, Sam Cronin and Colin Clark earning their first cap against Haiti, 85 players have now earned at least one cap under Bob Bradley.
  • Kyle Beckerman's first goal for the United States in the team's last outing against Panama means 28 different players have scored a goal during Bradley’s tenure.
  • Brian Ching is the leading cap winner and the top scorer on the U.S. roster with 38 caps and 10 goals, including one goal in the Gold Cup. Ching also assumed the duties of team captain in the last game following Jimmy Conrad's first half injury.
  • The U.S. is the two-time defending champion of the tournament, hoisting the trophy in 2005 and 2007. The U.S. also won the 1991 and 2002 editions.
  • Ching is the only player on the current roster that was part of the team that won the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup. 

ROAD TO THE SEMIFINALS: The U.S. won their 10th CONCACAF Gold Cup opening match in 10 tries with the 4-0 win against Grenada at Seattle’s Qwest Field on July 4. Freddy Adu, Stuart Holden, Robbie Rogers and Charlie Davies all scored for the U.S. In the second game, the U.S. was deadlocked with Honduras at RFK Stadium for 74 minutes, but a Santino Quaranta strike, followed by a Brian Ching goal five minutes later, gave the U.S. control of the game and the group with a 2-0 win. Against Haiti, an early Davy Arnaud goal gave the U.S. a lead into halftime but two quick-fire Haiti strikes put the inexperienced American team in a hole going into the later stages of the match. The U.S. erased a deficit in group play when the team used a late Stuart Holden goal to draw 2-2 with Haiti and finish atop Group B with seven points. Against Panama in the quarterfinals, however, Bob Bradley's team did one better and came from behind to eliminate a feisty Panama side for the third consecutive Gold Cup. Panama took the lead just before halftime but U.S. answered back in the early stages of the second period when midfielder Kyle Beckerman laced a shot into the upper corner from the edge of the area. Ninety minutes was not enough time to separate the two teams, however the U.S. gained the upper hand near the end of the first period of extra time. Kenny Cooper converted a penalty kick and the team recorded a 2-1 victory.

SEEKING SATISFACTION: Honduras will take the field on Thursday looking for its first win against the USA in the third game between the two nations this summer. The two sides met in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying in early June, a match in which the USA prevailed 2-1, before locking horns again in CONCACAF Gold Cup group play nearly a fortnight ago. After a tense 70 minutes, Bob Bradley's team used late goals to secure a 2-0 win and put the USA on the path to the knockout round. The result also galvanized Honduras, and Reinaldo Rueda's men have since earned two wins on the trot against Grenada and Canada. Following a tough win against Canada, Honduras will be looking to advance to the finals for the first time since 1991.

TO THIS POINT: Honduras kicked off the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup with a 1-0 victory against Haiti, with forward Carlos Costly scoring the game-winner off of a Walter Martinez free kick in the 76th minute. Following the loss against the U.S. at RFK Stadium, Honduras thrashed Grenada 4-0 to finish in second place in Group B. In the quarterfinal match with in-form Canada, Honduras captain Walter Martinez scored a first half penalty kick and the team took its lead into the latter stages of the game. The Canadians laid siege to the Honduras goal in the waning moments of the game, but the Central American side stood firm and managed to eek out a 1-0 victory at Lincoln Financial Field.

IN THE GOLD CUP: The teams have met four times in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, with the U.S. holding a 3-0-1 record in a series which included a scoreless final in 1991. In the inaugural event, the U.S. – which beat Mexico for just the third-time ever 2-0 in the semifinals – won the trophy 4-3 in a penalty kick shootout after 120 minutes of scoreless action. Tony Meola made three saves in the penalty shootout, while Marcelo Balboa, Paul Caligiuri, Dominic Kinnear and Fernando Clavijo converted for the U.S. Two years later in group play, the U.S. defeated Honduras 1-0 on a 29th-minute Alexi Lalas goal. The U.S. posted a 2-1 overtime victory in the semifinals of the 2005 edition at Giants Stadium, with John O’Brien scoring the tying goal and Oguchi Onyewu getting the game-winner with his first international goal. Most recently the teams met on July 8 at RFK Stadium in group play of the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

GOALKEEPERS (3): John Bodden (CD Victoria), Ricardo Canales (CD Motagua), Donis Escobar (CD Olimpia)
DEFENDERS (7): Osman Chavez (CD Platense), Juan Carlos Garcia (CD Marathon), Nery Medina (Real Espana), David Molina (CD Motagua), Erick Norales (CD Marathon), Johnny Palacios (CD Olimpia), Luis Ramos (Nyireghaza Spartacus)

OLYMPIC FEEL: Honduras and the U.S. were CONCACAF representatives at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and each roster for this 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup matchup includes several Olympians available for selection on Thursday. For the U.S., Stuart Holden, Michael Parkhurst and Robbie Rogers represented the U.S. in China, narrowly failing to advance out of their group with a win against Japan, a tie with the Netherlands and a loss to Nigeria. Three more players, Freddy Adu, Charlie Davies, Benny Feilhaber, were part of the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup squad and all three featured in the group match between the two sides. The players have since been released to their clubs. Six players from the Honduras roster – Edder Delgado, Luis Lopez, David Molina, Erick Norales and Rigoberto Padilla traveled to China, where Honduras was shutout by Italy, Cameroon and Korea Republic. The U.S. and Honduras faced off in the final of the CONCACAF Under-23 Championship after both teams had secured advancement, with Honduras prevailing 1-0 in overtime. For the U.S., Holden is the only Gold Cup player to have appeared in that final, while for Honduras Lopez, Molina, Norales and Padilla were all on the field that day and Georgie Welcome – who is on the Gold Cup roster but not the Olympic roster – scored the game-winner in the 103rd minute.

LOOKING BACK AT THE ’07 RUN: In the 2007 Gold Cup final, the U.S. continued their domination of Mexico with a sterling, come-from-behind 2-1 masterpiece to claim their fourth all-time CONCACAF Gold Cup championship. Despite a 1-0 halftime deficit, a confident and powerful U.S. team dominated Mexico in the second half behind a Landon Donovan penalty kick and the 2007 Best of U.S. Soccer Awards’ Best Goal from Benny Feilhaber. Feilhaber’s one-time, full-volley blast sailed into the upper left corner past a helpless Oswaldo Sanchez and, after some heroic late goalkeeping from Tim Howard, held up as the game winner. That win earned the U.S. a place in the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup as regional champions. The U.S. advanced to the final after a narrow 2-1 win against a tough Canadian side in the semifinal and a 2-1 win against a determined Panama in the quarterfinals. In the group phase, the U.S. was backed by three-consecutive shutouts in wins against El Salvador (4-0), Trinidad & Tobago (2-0) and Guatemala (1-0).

HOPING FOR ANOTHER TRIP TO SOUTH AFRICA: After five of 10 games, the U.S. sits in second place in the CONCACAF region’s FIFA World Cup qualifying, two points behind Costa Rica. The difference between the top two teams in the standings is the result of a 3-1 defeat to Costa Rica suffered by the U.S. on June 3 on the artificial surface of San Jose’s Saprissa Stadium. Following the loss in Costa Rica, the U.S. defeated Honduras on June 6, in Chicago to continue an undefeated run in home qualifiers that dates to 2001. The road to South Africa started for the U.S. with a 9-0 aggregate win in a two-game series against Barbados, and continued in the fall as the U.S. posted a 5-1-0 record in the CONCACAF semifinal round in a group with Trinidad & Tobago, Guatemala and Cuba.

CONCACAF FINAL ROUND QUALIFYING TABLE: The top three teams in the hexagonal table automatically earn berths to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, while the fourth-place team will face a two-leg playoff against the fifth-place finisher in South America. The next set of games is slated for Aug. 12, when the U.S. travels in an attempt to earn their first victory against Mexico at the famed Estadio Azteca.

CONCACAF Final Round Standings

BOB ON THE JOB: Since January of 2007 it has been the charge of U.S. head coach Bob Bradley to achieve the most important goal of any soccer playing nation: qualification for the FIFA World Cup. With 46 games under his belt, seeing 85 different players at least once and the process of reaching South Africa in 2010 in full swing, a review of the body of work during the past two years points to the U.S. clearly heading in the right direction. Since the start of the four-year cycle, the U.S. has:

  • produced the best finish ever at a FIFA tournament, finishing second at the FIFA Confederations Cup
  • won six straight FIFA World Cup qualifiers in a row in 2008, a new team record (June 15-Oct. 15)
  • won the CONCACAF Gold Cup title in 2007 to qualify for the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup
  • won by the largest margin of victory in U.S. World Cup qualifying history (8-0 vs. Barbados on June 15, 2008)
  • won back-to-back games in Europe for the first time in team history (Oct. 17, 2007 @ Switzerland and March 26, 2008 @ Poland)
  • won three straight matches on the road for the first time in team history (Oct. 17, 2007 @ Switzerland, Nov. 17, 2007 @ South Africa and March 26, 2008 @ Poland)
  • played seven matches against four teams ranked in the top five in the world at the time they stepped on the field against them (Argentina, Brazil-3, Italy, Spain-2)
  • played matches on four continents
  • posted 1-1-1 record against No. 1-ranked teams, including a semifinal upset of Spain at the FIFA Confederations Cup.
