Diskerud Aims For Larger US Role In Next 4 Years

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — The first person Mix Diskerud saw when he scored against Ecuador last week was Landon Donovan, whose cross started the sequence that led to the goal.

There's something that seems appropriate there.

Donovan is gone now, his days with the U.S. national team over following his farewell match last week. The post-Donovan era starts Tuesday night when the Americans host Honduras in Boca Raton, Florida.

Diskerud is part of a young group of players who will be asked to take more important roles during the cycle leading to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The U.S. is unbeaten in its last 14 matches on American soil, with 12 wins and two ties.
