U.S beat Honduras 1-0

MIAMI, The United States got Jurgen Klinsmann a victory in his fourth try as American coach. Clint Dempsey scored in the 36th minute and goalkeeper Tim Howard made several key saves in a 1-0 exhibition victory over Honduras on Saturday night. “It’s huge for all of us. You don’t ever want to... go a long period of time without winning,” Howard said. “We performed well, I think, and we’re trying to set a foundation, but ultimately you have to win. That was the focus coming in.” Since Klinsmann replaced Bob Bradley on July 29 after the CONCACAF Gold Cup, the Americans had tied Mexico, and lost to Costa Rica and Belgium.
When Klinsmann took over as coach of Germany’s national team seven years ago, Die Mannschaft beat Austria in his debut.

“Tim is getting to a time in his career where he realizes these are the golden years for him ahead,” Klinsmann said. “We really enjoy what he brings to the table.” Oguchi Onyewu, appearing for the first time under Klinsmann, squandered a scoring chance in the 66th minute when he volleyed a rebound over the crossbar. Escobar had made a save on Dempsey and the ball landed at Onyewu’s feet.
