Had a good time last night at Honduras vs. Peru. The Peruvians spoiled the Honduran party with a 2-1 win. Peru scored its first goal on an own-goal by Honduran Emilio Izaguirre in the 40th minute. David Suazo tied it up on a beautiful solo effort just after halftime, but then Hernan Rengifo knocked in the game winner in the 63rd minute. It was not the kind of warmup Honduras expected, especially against a team of mostly young, untested Peruvians.
The US had an equally horrid result, losing 3-1 at Denmark. NOT good. All three Danish goals in second half. A few key players, such as Landon Donovan and Tim Howard, were missing, but still...
Thierry Henry ADMITS it was a hand ball, but it doesn't matter. Ireland stays home. France goes to South Africa. Life isn't fair sometimes.
MLS names MVP today. Jeff Cunningham (who scored the lone US goal at Denmark), Donovan and Shalrie Joseph are finalists. Banking on Donovan.
