The Honduras National Team attempted to defend its title as the UNCAF champion today vs Costa Rica.
Final Score Costa Rica 1 – Honduras 0
Costa Rica defeated the defending champion team of Honduras on a goal scored while off-sides at minute 37 of the game by: Giancarlo González. Although the Costa Rica goal should have been annulled Costa Rica played a much better technical game and actually forgave many miscues by the Seleccion Catracha.
The Honduran national team improved in the second half, pressured Costa Rica in search of a draw, but returned to prove that we are still very weak and lack a more aggressive attack strategy.
Hats off to the new UNCAF Copa Centro Americana Champions our neighbors and friends Costa Rica.

Winning Sunday’s soccer championship will not be an easy task for Los Catrachos, however, as they will be playing Costa Rica on the Tico’s home turf. This UNCAF final match is for pride’s sake more than anything else, as Honduras has already qualified for the 2013 Gold Cup, in which they are the current the defending champions.
