Emilio Izaguirre would love to put on a better show in Brazil than in South Africa

While Scotland will not be heading to Brazil for the World Cup finals next year at least one player who plies his trade here will be. Emilio Izaguirre is looking forward to playing in his second successive World Cup with Honduras. The Celtic defender was part of the Honduras team that clinched a place at the 2014 finals in Brazil after a 2-2 draw in Jamaica back in October. It was Izaguirre performances at the World Cup in South Africa which helped earn him a move to Celtic, and he is keen to build on that experience. Honduras only picked up one point on their debut appearance at the 2010 finals, but Izaguirre is hopeful that experience will lead to a better showing next summer.Izaguirre said: "The most exciting thing about the World Cup is just qualifying for it as it made people all over Honduras so happy. It's still a new experience for us. When we went to South Africa we had no experience of playing in a big tournament and now we have that so hopefully we can have a good World Cup. We have been striving for this for four years since the last World Cup in South Africa, and we are all very happy in Honduras, whether it's the fans, our families or everyone in the country. It's very exciting and I have to thank God for this moment as going back to the World Cup is fantastic."
