The United States men’s soccer team suffered defeat to Honduras in the first round of 2013 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Wednesday at Estadio Olimpico. Honduras edged the Americans, 2-1. It was Honduras’ Oscar Boniek Garcia that netted the game-winning goal.

USA still has nine World Cup qualifying matches remaining, but they will need to put together a much better effort if they have any hopes of making the 2014 World Cup in Rio de Janeiro. Simply put, it was a horrible performance for the United States. USMNT head coach Jurgen Klinsmann will need to stop trying to out think himself moving forward and put together the best possible line up in order for the Americans to succeed.

The United States’ next qualifying match up is a road game against heated rivals Mexico. If the Americans can’t get it together in time, they could run into another roadblock from El Tri.

Here are some highlights from the US men’s national team loss to Honduras:
