It makes sense that a Colombian coach, Luis Fernando Suarez, is at the helm of the Honduran squad, as you may find that the Central American nation’s devotion to association football is unmatched. Not only was Honduras engaged in the “soccer war” of 1969 against El Salvador, but President Lobo declared a national holiday following the Honduran World Cup finals qualification last year—key player Roger Espinoza explains that football is the “soul of the country”. However, notable World Cup writer Harrison Stark may be accurate in his Honduran forecast of “play three, and go home”, as the team has just lost 2-0 to Turkey in a Washington D.C. warm-up game—with problems in both attack and defense—and Bloomberg does not believe that Honduras will win a game in Brasil. Facing Group E leader France in their first match, the Hondurans will need to be in peak form from the outset.
