Honduras and USA meet in the Final Round of the Concacaf World Cup Qualifiers 2022. This game will take place at Estadio Olímpico Metropolitano in San Pedro Sula on September 8, 2021 at 10:30 PM (ET). Both teams have the best names available to play at the qualifiers. Here is all the detailed information about this World Cup Qualifiers potential lineups.
This game is important for Honduras. They have shown that they can hold up any team, but three points are more valuable than a draw. Honduras are in fourth place in the standings with two draws and two points.
USA are doing a good job playing in the Final Round of the qualifiers 2022. But they don't have wins, only draws. It is somewhat disappointing for a team full of big names with international experience. The USMNT is expected to finally be able to win a game in the final round.
Honduras confirmed lineup
After two recent draws in the Final Round, things became clear for Honduras: "Our defense works like a Swiss watch." That is the conclusion after drawing against El Salvador 0-0 and Canada 1-1, both games on the road.
The roster of 26 Honduran players is very similar to the one they have been using for the last three years. Players are not part of an experiment. Fabián Coito, Honduras' head coach, has been doing an exceptional job choosing the best group for the qualifiers 2022.
This is the likely Honduras' confirmed for this game: López; Najar, Pereira, Figueroa, Rodríguez; Pineda, Arriaga, Flores, Rubio; Lozano and Moya.
USA confirmed lineup
Severe criticism against the USMNT for the last two draws in the Final Round of the Concacaf World Cup Qualifiers 2022. The players have performed well, but the team does not end up playing as they are supposed to.
Gregg Berhalter, USA head coach, only has Major League Soccer experience. He was the head coach of the Columbus Crew SC from 2013 to 2018. Critics say he is not the one for the job. But with Berhalter at the helm, the USMNT won a series of important games before qualifiers. One of those games was the Gold Cup final against Mexico.
This is the confirmed USA's lineup for this game: Turner; Brooks, Sands, McKenzie, Robinson; Acosta, Adams, Bello; Pulisic, Sargent and Pepi.
