Final Score Honduras 2 Jamaica 2 —– Honduras qualifies for the 2014 Brazil World Cup!
Gracias Seleccion!


Well Catrachos, here we go, our ticket to the World Cup is in the hands of our dear coach  Luis Fernando Suarez and his most likely startung line up of  Noel Valladares,  Arnold Peralta Maynor Figueroa,  Víctor Bernárdez,  Emilio Izaguirre,  Boniek García,  Luis Garrido,  Wilson Palacios,  Roger Espinoza,  Jerry Bengtson and Carlo Costly. All we need is one point. That means that a tie or better on Tuesday, October 15, 2013, 7:30 PM Honduras time 9:30 pm ET. National Stadium – Kingston, Jamaica. Jamaica vs Honduras and our  “Seleccion de Honduras“will qualify for the 2014 World Cup to be held in Brazil.

This year has proven to be what every sports fanatic like myself never wants to see. Down to the LAST game! If we don’t pull this one off, we sit out the World Cup. Say it is not so! The entire country of Honduras could care less about the upcoming general elections and all of those politicians. All anyone cares about right now is one measly point for our “H”. Our team arrived in Jamaica last night and will practice a bit today. Get a good night sleep we hope and go make history vs Jamaica on Tuesday night.

This soccer game means so much to Honduras that you can count on not getting anything done in Honduras on Tuesday. As for Jamaica, the “Jamaica Reggae Boyz” will be playing their last game of the 2013 Hexagonal at home and will be wanting to go out on a positive note so do not think this game will be a gimme. The “Boyz” will be playing for their pride and all of us know that means a lot. Seleccion your entire country is behind you and we wish you the best.

Since the football match does not start until tomorrow and you can count on us keeping you updated live during the game; I want to take a moment and address all the bad press our National Team has had to endure this year. Earlier this year ESPN said Honduras is not World Class. Our players shook that off and went on to tie Mexico. Later the same ESPN analyst said there was no way Honduras could beat Mexico in Mexico city and our players didn’t just shake it off they won in Mexico City! Now Fox Sports commentator Juan Carlos Gabriel de Anda is accusing the Costa Rica Goalie of being paid off to allow Honduras to defeat Costa Rica and has called for FIFA to investigate. Honestly in my opinion, sports commentators from Mexico are just frustrated  and have been the ones beating us up for no good reason. Our TEAM has played well and let’s face it the people of Honduras and the people of Mexico really have nothing against each other so quit criticizing us and focus on getting your own team to the World Cup; Mexico still has a chance but don’t blame it on Honduras. We won fair and square.

Stay tuned for the game!
