USA 1 - Honduras 0

From United States National Team Players Association

The United States got its first win under head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, beating Honduras on Saturday night in Miami. Clint Dempsey scored the game's only goal in the 35th minute. Tim Howard picked up the shutout, making several strong saves. Without Landon Donovan, Klinsmann used Clint Dempsey in an attacking role playing behind the two forwards. Dempsey had what looked like a second goal called offsides in the 85th minute. The United States plays Ecuador on Tuesday.

"We didn't play our best in the first 20 minutes but I thought we found the game a little better in the last 20 minutes of the first half," Dempsey said. "There were difficult conditions for both teams with the wind and the pitch being a bit bumpy. We're happy to get our first win under the new manager and hopefully we can build on it."
