Here is what the WORLD press has to say about it!
World and European champions Spain go crashing out of Games after Honduras loss (dailymailonline.co.uk)
Gold-medal favorite Spain was eliminated from men’s Olympic football Sunday in another 1-0 upset loss after Honduras forward Jerry Bengtson scored an early goal. (foxsports.com)
Three players combined for Bengtson’s third of the tournament, during a break down on the left side in the seventh minute. Bengtson cut inside and the striker jumped over a defender to power in a header past Spain goalkeeper David de Gea.
Spain had hoped to hold three major titles at once after winning the 2010 World Cup and 2012 European Championship, but the country will go home without a chance to compete for a medal after it plays its last match against Morocco on Wednesday in Manchester. If they don’t score, they will also return without a goal.
Honduras moves into second place in Group D.
Here is what we here at Honduras.com said two days before the game!
If they accomplish nothing else at the London Olympic games, defeating Spain would make therm heroes when they return home. In addition, for Honduras, should the Catrachos pull off an upset against Spain, they would position themselves to advance to the next phase of the Olympics for the first time in Honduras Olympic History.
Well that statement is now fact! Everywhere throughout Honduras all anyone can talk about is how AWESOME it feels to have beaten Spain and how much the Honduras SUB 23 is everyone’s hero!
