After spending most of the first half pulling their usual "lay back, bomb it deep" style, the US broke through in the 36th minute. Jermaine Jones placed an overhead pass directly on the foot of Clint Dempsey, as the Honduras defender got turned around.

Just four minutes later Honduras was able to tie it up, as the US back line simply watched Juan Garcia execute a perfect bicycle kick. It's 1-1 at the half.
