Monday morning linkage

The USMNT kicks off the Hex on Wednesday against Honduras.  The game will be at 4 PM ET on beIN Sport.  It is being played in the afternoon since Honduras wants to play in the sun and heat.  Apparently Honduras declared Wednesday a national holiday so the country can watch the game.

US Soccer gives us a video tour of Estadio Olimpico in Honduras (the video is from 2009, but it still gives you a look).  US Soccer has also posted field-level highlights from the friendly against Canada.

Brent Latham (ESPN Insider) looks at the January transfer moves and their impact with the USMNT.

It doesn’t look like Tim Howard or Brad Guzan will have to look over their shoulder for Mix Diskerud moving up the goalkeeper ranks.

Nothing new to report on the financial situation at Brøndby, but Clarence Goodson played in a friendly for them this weekend.

Eugene Starikov played in a friendly for Rostov this weekend and picked up an assist.

Michael Bradley will have a new manager at Roma since Zdenek Zeman was fired this weekend after their 4-2 loss to Cagliari.  Aurelio Andreazzoli is now the interim manager.

Zak Whitbread is making progress, but still not fully back from his calf injury.

Daniel Antunez was spotted in a Chivas USA friendly last week.  Antunez last played for Inter Turku in Finland in 2012.

That is it for the links.  The USMNT roster should be announced some time this morning as well.  One possible surprise name on the roster?  Kim Kardashian.

    I had ideas about central american stadiums, but this is pretty damn primitive for a national stadium. I guess the stadiums outside of the U.S.(Canada) and Mexico are just tin cans.

  2. Ian says:

    How hot is it forcasted to be?

  3. Matt says:

    85-90 with 65% humidity.

    @kyle the new saprissa is a very nice ground and the Cuscatlan in San Salvador recently got some pretty modern refurbishment. Panamas stadium, from what I understand, is pretty decent.

    The rest of them are garbage :) with the old saprissa gone, id have to say Kingston’s is the worst ground.
