United States manager Jurgen Klinsmann will have a lot on his mind following Wednesday's 2-1 loss to Honduras.

There was a lovely Jermaine Jones chip to Clint Dempsey for the opening goal of the match and a spectacular bicycle kick by Juan Carlos Garcia to level the scoreline shortly before the break. Tim Howard had kept the guests competitive through the early going in San Pedro Sula, but in the end it was a mistake by the American goalkeeper that cost his side a point in a 2-1 loss to Honduras Wednesday.
