The US men’s national soccer team lost the first game of its World Cup qualifying campaign against Honduras 2-1 in San Pedro Sula.

Honduras is good, but the US was expected to at least get a valuable road draw in this game.

The US scored in the 35th minute through Clint Dempsey, but Juan Garcia of Honduras followed it up five minutes later with a crazy bicycle kick.

Honduras got the go-ahead goal in the 80th after some terrible, terrible defending from Geoff Cameron.

It’s still very early in the 10-game qualifying campaign, but this is about as bad a start as they could have imagined.

San Pedro Sula is the most violent city on Earth, and it was particularly unkind to the US today.
