He explained that they’re looking for another European rival for May 29, to get the Honduras team ready for the playoff games against Costa Rica and Jamaica.

“The idea of this match came from them, it seemed interesting to them to play against Honduras,” said Miguel Trujillo, a FENAFUTH (National Autonomous Federation of Football of Honduras - Federación Nacional Autónoma de Fútbol de Honduras) contractor.
Callejas also said that he is confident that Honduras will have a good presentation in March in the matches against Mexico and Panama and is expecting to close the first round of the hexagonal sorting in June with matches against Costa Rica on the 6th, against Jamaica on the 11th and the United States on June 18th.

Israel’s team is 59th ranked in the world; Honduras’ is 50th. While neither squad is a soccer powerhouse, the match, Mevy says, is a natural draw for New York City’s large Jewish and Hispanic communities. “It makes economic sense.” If the game is a financial success, he says, he may arrange a game for the Israelis later this year in Los Angeles, which also has a large Israeli-expatriate and American Jewish community.

“A lot of people,” Jewish sports fans in New York, “are waiting there for us,” former Hapoel Tel-Aviv FC trainer Eli Gutman national team coach said.

“It’s a big honor for us to represent Israel.”

The game, as any event involving Israel, will have special security. The Israeli team usually travels with its own security personnel, he says.  “No team has the security that Israel has.”

Honduras National Team Players  Osman Chavez, Jerry Bengtson, Mario Martínez, Marvin Chávez y Victor Bernárdez, will not be participating in this friendly match against Israel. They will be reporting to the National Team camp following the game.
