Saturday kickaround: USA vs. Honduras, World Cup qualifying, Americans abroad, Virginia Cavaliers upset Maryland Terps

*Let’s try this again. Match #4 in the Juergen Klinsmann era takes place this evening in stormy Miami as the U.S. national soccer team (0-2-1 under its new head coach with one goal scored) plays Honduras at Sun Life Stadium. A small crowd and poor weather conditions are expected. Fox Soccer and Univision will provide live coverage, with kickoff set for a little after 6 p.m. ET. Will Bill Hamid, D.C. United’s 20-year-old goalkeeper, earn his first cap with a second half appearance? This is his third call-up under Klinsmann, and after this match, he’ll return to DCU and, consequently, miss the Ecuador friendly Tuesday at Red Bull Arena. (United plays Wednesday at Vancouver.)

*Most stunning result in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying Friday? Bermuda 2, Trinidad & Tobago 1. Don’t chuckle too much, USA supporters. A 1-0 loss at Bermuda in 1991 cost coach Bob Gansler his job. ... In St. Lucia, United’s Dwayne De Rosario played 55 minutes of Canada’s 7-0 romp. The next qualifier is Tuesday vs. Puerto Rico in Toronto.

For Herculez Gomez video and Virginia’s upset of Maryland.....

*U.S. forward Herculez Gomez scored on a header on the final touch of the match during Tecos’ 3-2 loss to Monterrey in Mexico. (Fast forward to almost the end of this video to see his header.)

*Will Bates scored a superb goal in the 84th minute as Virginia upset previously unbeaten Maryland, 2-1. Read my match report, watch the UVA video package.
