Honduras Brings Out Big Names In Hope of Defeating The US
As of right now, the Oct. 10 CONCACAF World Cup qualifier between the U.S. and Honduras still has the green light from FIFA to be played in San Pedro Sula, even though the Central American nation is a state of political turmoil. Wherever the match is played, Honduras manager Reinaldo Rueda brought in a a first-choice squad. Honduras, would guarantee a place if it beats the U.S. and Costa Rica loses to Trinidad & Tobago.
Big name players brought in for the upcoming game are Tottenham’s midfield Wilson Palacios, Wigan’s Hendry Thomas, Toronto FC’s Amado Guevera and ex-FC Dallas midfielder Ramon Nunez. Inter Milan striker David Suazo, who’s missed most of the final round of qualifying due to a torn knee meniscus is also expected to play.
A Sauzo-less Honduras gave the U.S. all it could handle in a June 6 qualifier in Chicago, with the American falling down a goal, but rallying then hanging on for a 2-1 victory.
