One of the fun sidelights of tonight's friendly between the US and Honduras down in Miami is the match up of FC Dalas teammates Marvin Chavez and Brek Shea. It's even conceivable that the two could match up head to head with Shea as left mid and Chavez at right mid.
Shea has emerged as a favorite of U.S. National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann after assisting on Robbie Rogers’ goal in the 73rd minute of a 1-1 draw against Mexico on Aug. 10. The Texas native has played the full 90 minutes in both of the U.S.’s matches since, logging a total of 210 minutes.
Chavez has played 84 minutes for the Honduran National Team in the team’s last three matches and started Honduras’ latest match. The midfielder logged 28 minutes in a 3-0 loss to Paraguay on Sept. 6 before leaving the match with an ankle injury.
The match is scheduled to kick off at 5 p.m. CT on FOX Soccer and Univision.
(Edit: Shea is starting for the US. Chavez is on the bench for Honduras.)
