All these things considered, I'll be satisfied with a draw and ecstatic with a win.
I hope Jozy starts as well but Gomez has been consistently better with the national team so if we play a lone striker, it'll probably be Herc. The lack of width and wingers concerns me but this is the lineup I think we'll see:
Chandler - Cameron - Bocanegra - Johnson
I kind of want to see Besler or Gonzalez get the start instead of Boca but I doubt JK will do it for a tough road game.
I just hope JK doesn't expect Honduras to bunker at home. I predict them to be more on the defensive side but not at the level where you would declare they're bunkering. If anything they will be deadly in the counter attack and if they do score it will be from that (Or some shit pass in midfield that leads to a goal). Also when will Bradly get to be the damn Captain, I think it's time for Boca to pass the torch
