Honduras Bicycle Kick

The United States Men’s National Soccer Team went head to head with Honduras in a 2014 World Cup Qualifying match on Wednesday afternoon in Honduras.

Clint Dempsey put the U.S. ahead 1-0 in the 36th minute.

Honduras had an answer soon after, though. Defensemen Juan Garcia delivered this ridiculous bicycle kick to the back of the net.

Garica’s amazing goal tied the match. Honduras then took the lead in the 79th minute with a Jerry Bengston goal.

They held onto the lead, giving them the upset victory over the United States. The U.S. was ranked 28th in the world coming into the match. Honduras was ranked only 59th.

With nine matches left in their qualifying run, the loss puts a little more pressure on the United States, with their next match coming on March 22 against Costa Rica.

Aside from that: man, that goal was a thing of beauty.
