While we host our own international friendly vs. Honduran-side C.D.S. Vida tonight at Buck Shaw, two of our mainstays, Wondolowski and Bernardez, will face off in Miami. 

Wondo and the USMNT take on Muma and Honduras at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Florida tonight. While this match is only an international friendly for Klinsmann's squad, they're looking to get back to their winning ways after a late goal from Ecuador put a damper on their friendly last week. Meanwhile, Los Catrachos are looking to redeem themselves against CONCACAF opponents as well - coming off of a 2-0 loss against Mexico last week. 

The match which kicks off at 5 p.m. PT will be aired live on ESPN, WatchESPN and Unimas.

If fans donate $10 or more, they will receive all five collectable pins. Donations will only be collected until kick-off. Cosmopolitan Catering will announce the donation amount and present the check to President Dave Kaval at halftime.
