Andy Najar scores game-winner, puts Honduras through to Gold Cup semifinals - Black And Red United
(If you're asking yourself, "did he just link us to another Black & Red United post?" the answer is, "yup.")

Using Adam's words, "our Andy" (and yes, agreed, he'll always be OUR Andy) returned to the DMV recently and didn't disappoint scoring the game's only goal (and his first international one) on a header in the 49th minute. The goal gave Honduras the win over Costa Rica and helped them reach the semi-finals of the Gold Cup where, last night, they ran up against our USMNT and lost 3-1 at the hands (or feet I should say) of Eddie Johnson, Landon Donovan, and the rest of the stars and stripes crew. Anyhow, check out Najar's header via You-Tube.
