An old soccer saying says that if you suffer, you enjoy more. And those who can attest that this is the case are the members of the USMNT, who only in the last minute of the semifinal match of the Concacaf Nations League was able to defeat Honduras and beat it 1-0 to access the final of the tournament, where the rival is expected to come out of the game that Mexico will star against Costa Rica.

Zack Steffen, Sergiño Dest, Weston Mc Kennie, Gio Reyna and Christian Pulisic, the stars of USMNT, were headlines. Despite this, the match against Honduras was much tougher than expected, which is why the coach had to make several modifications, including removing Pulisic and Reyna, two of its great figures.

And it was through one of Gregg Berhalter's changes that the United States achieved the agonizing triumph: Jordan Sietatcheu. The Young Boys player from Switzerland entered in great form and with one minute remaining before the end of regular time, he managed to break the parity and score the only goal of the match, which allowed him to qualify for the tournament definition.
