The U.S. Men's National Team continue their path towards the 2018 World Cup this Friday when they face Honduras. The USMNT needs a win in order to get back on track, having lost both previous qualifiers in their CONCACAF Hexagonal matches. For their part, Honduras are sitting fourth on the table with a win a loss. Only the top three teams will earn an automatic berth to the World Cup, while fourth place will head to a playoff match against an AFC team. The U.S. will have the home advantage as they play at Avaya Stadium in San Jose, Calif. With a win, the U.S. would tie Honduras on points and sit in a better position ahead of their second qualifier during this international break, which will be against Panama on Mar. 28.
For their part, Mexico will host CONCACAF heavyweight Costa Rica. Mexico will try to use Estadio Azteca to their advantage, as the stadium is one of the most difficult to play at for visitors not only due to the strong home support but also the altitude, with an elevation of 7,349 feet. Both teams are sitting in good positions on the Hexagonal table, with Costa Rica first and Mexico second, but Mexico will want to claim three points at home before traveling to Trinidad and Tobago on Mar. 28.
