Honduras Y USA They face each other for the semifinals of the Concacaf Nations League. The match will be played this Thursday, from 6:30 in the afternoon (Peruvian time), at the Empower Field stadium at Mile High. The transmission will be in charge of TUDN, Deportes TVC (Honduras) and Univisión (United States).
For the United States, the League of Nations will be the first examination of its new and exciting batch of promises, including defender Sergiño Dest (FC Barcelona) and forward Gio Reyna (Borussia Dortmund).
The star of the team, forward Christian Pulisic, joined the camp in time after lifting the European Champions League with Chelsea last week.
Coach Gregg Berhalter hopes that the achievement of Pulisic, the first American to win Europe’s top club tournament, will inspire the competitive leap he expects from his young squad.
“When someone wins a trophy, it helps the group to realize that we want to have a winning mentality, that we want to win games and we want to win titles,” stressed Berhalter, who is looking for his first trophy as a coach.

19:30 hours – Venezuela, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay
20:30 hours – Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil

The United States resolved several friendlies against Panama and El Salvador with thrashing in recent months but on Sunday, without Pulisic in the group, they fell 2-1 to Switzerland, leaving a poor impression.
For its part, Honduras, its rival on Thursday, arrives in Denver focused on its preparation for the start of the World Cup qualifiers.
“Nothing assures us that we will always have all the players. These games are always very important and they will help us to see some players that we will not be able to have in the Gold Cup ”, declared the Honduran coach, the Uruguayan Fabián Coito.
“The United States is the favorite,” he said. “But everything will depend on how you play on the field, not what the statistics say or what you think.”
Coito will have at his disposal veteran Maynor Figueroa as head of defense, Edwin Rodríguez to direct operations in the midfield and Alberth Ellis as the main offensive threat.
The four Nations League semi-finalists secured their tickets in a group stage held in the second half of 2019 with all the Concacaf teams.
