Ten Teams To Watch For At Brazil 2014: 10 - Honduras

19 October 2012 04:26

North American football is dominated by Mexico and the United States, but this Honduras team look a real threat to their dual hegemony on the continent.

Their biggest name in Europe is Wigan Athletic's Maynor Figueroa, but the Hondurans have never progressed beyond the first round of the World Cup.

Another side to have hugely impressed at this summer’s Olympics, Honduras posed Mano Menezes' Brazil all kinds of problems and only exited London 2012 with a 3-2 defeat – and with nine men.

Roger Espinoza starred in that game, outshining Santos' Neymar with his skill and hard work, scoring a wonderful goal before being sent off.

They also beat Spain in the group stage, and with prodigious playmaker Andy Najar another genuine star of the current selection, Honduras will be far from a walkover if they make it to the World Cup.
