Only a few days after the conclusion of the 2015 Copa American and already we have another international tournament to savour. This time, however, the focus is on countries from around North and Central America competing in the Gold Cup.

The USA have entered this tournament full of promise, buoyed by a 2-1 friendly win over Germany and a World Cup victory for their female counterparts. A lot of attention will be on the Americans as they seek to win a trophy on home soil.

Early on Wednesday morning (UK time), the Americans lined up for a 2-1 victory against Honduras in the football results from yesterday.

Former Fulham forward Clint Dempsey opened the scoring after 26 minutes, giving the US a 1-0 lead before doubling it after 64 minutes. However, Honduras ensured that the Americans endured a tense finish after bringing the score back to 2-1 on 70 minutes, but the USA managed to hold out.
