"We look forward to being able to offer this important World Cup Qualifying game to U.S. Soccer fans live in their homes," said Doug Jacobs President of Integrated Sports Media.
This match is the second match for the United States as they open World Cup qualifying in CONCACAF on June 8th against Antigua & Barbuda. The last time the two sides met was in World Cup qualifying in 2008, ahead of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. The United States won both those matchups, taking the first 1-0 in Guatemala City and then the return leg 2-0 in Commerce City, Colorado.
The two sides have met 21 times all together, with the U.S. holding a 12-4-5 edge. The road to the World Cup for the United States has seemingly always led through some intense matchups with the Chapines, with the sides meeting before the 1990, 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010 World Cups.
When the two sides last met in Guatemala City, on August 20, 2008, the U.S. managed to do what it had never done before, win on the Chapines home turf. In a tough battle, that saw two ejections, a goal by U.S. captain Carlos Bocanegra sealed the U.S. win. The U.S. captain scored the game winning goal in the 69th minute with both sides playing a man down. DaMarcus Beasley, who had just entered the game, sent a corner kick from the left side into the penalty area, Bocanegra managed to get open advancing toward the ball, and nodded a header into the inside netting at the far post.
