Team USA is still unbeaten after joining the 2014 World Cup when it earned a 1-1 draw against Honduras on Tuesday night in Florida.

After they lost to Belgium in the World Cup, the American players were able to beat Czech Republic before drawing with Ecuador. But according to Bleacher Report, though the team has not yet lost twice, they still not have taken bigger steps to better their performance.

"The attack remains a work in progress, while coach Jurgen Klinsmann is trying to figure out is best defensive combination," Bleacher Report added.

The International Business Times said that Honduras' Maynor Figueroa was able to make a goal in the last five minutes of the game. For the part of the USA team, Jozy Altidore was able to score the needed goal with an assist from Michael Bradley.

The performance of the US Team has been observed to be "impressive" especially with the roster of players contributing their talent to the team like Jermaine Jones taking a central defensive role and Mis Diskerud continuously being an efficient midfielder with Michael Bradley and Clint Dempsey.

"The key experiment on Tuesday was fielding 32-year-old Jones, who did so well as an all-action midfielder at the World Cup, being deployed at center-back. The recent signing for the New England Revolution looked comfortable for the most part, as did Diskerud in Jones's former holding role," the International Business Times explained.

With this gameplay, many thought that the team was doing their part to get past their opponent but not really playing the best that they could.

It was reported that there were a lot of times that the US handled the ball in a sloppy manner -- giving the Honduras players a chance to score in the game.

The Guardian added that it was a "patchy" performance for the home team who went up against a "very hardworking" pack of players. It added that the US players were doing their job well individually but not really contributing to the overall performance of the team.

The fans at the FAU Stadium boosted the confidence of the home players to do better and come up with a winning performance but it seemed that Klinsmann is still figuring out the game plan with his players on the field.

For the next matches, fans and sports analysts are expecting a better game performance for the USA team especially that they are set to face more competitive teams in the coming weeks and months.

They are set to face Ireland on Nov. 18 at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin while Honduras will go against Japan on Nov. 13 then China on Nov. 17, Bleacher Report said.
