CHICAGO — With a spot in the inaugural Concacaf Nations League final on the line, the U.S. men’s national team faces Honduras in the first semifinal at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colo. Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

The match will be broadcast live on Univision, TUDN, Paramount+, CBS Sports Network.

Fans will also be able to follow the match via Facebook, Twitter @USMNT, Instagram @USMNT and the official U.S. Soccer App.

In the other semifinal in Denver, Costa Rica meets Mexico. The winners will meet in the CNL final Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, with the third-place match taking place several hours prior.

The USMNT is 16-4-5 all-time against Honduras in a series dating back to 1965.

The teams have met 17 times in official competition, with the USA holding a commanding 12-2-3 record. One of the two losses came in World Cup qualifying on home soil, where U.S. Soccer sporting director Earnie Stewart scored two goals, but the USMNT fell, 3-2, at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. Sept. 1, 2001.

In the most recent encounter, an 85th-minute equalizer by Bobby Wood delivered the USMNT a 1-1 draw in sweltering conditions in San Pedro Sula. Sept. 5, 2017.

Three players on the U.S. roster were in Honduras that day, with Kellyn Acosta and Christian Pulisic starting the match while Tim Ream sat in reserve.

Five players have played against Honduras before: John Brooks (two games), DeAndre Yedlin (two) and Christian Pulisic (two), Kellyn Acosta (one) and Sebastian Lletget (one).

With Concacaf choosing the “Mile High City” of Denver to host the Nations League Final Four, the USMNT shifted its camp base to Crans Montana in the Swiss Alps. Training for five days at an elevation of approximately 5,000 feet prior to the friendly against No. 13-ranked Switzerland on May 30, the group went through efforts on and off the field to adjust to the conditions at altitude.

Pulisic and Zack Steffen missed the camp due to the UEFA Champions League final last Saturday. Pulisic and Chelsea defeat Manchester City’s Steffen, 1-0, to win the title. They joined the team in Denver Monday.
