Honduras vs Mexico U17 2015

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras – Mexico won its second straight CONCACAF Under-17 Championship title and record-extending sixth overall, defeating Honduras in the final 3-0 on Sunday night at the Estadio Francisco Morazan.

The Tricolor also stretched its unbeaten streak in the competition to 24 straight games, while the host lost for the first time in six tournament outings.

Honduras vs México Highlights U17 2015 Highlights and Recap

Both sides previously earned places at the 2015 FIFA World Cup, where they will be joined by Costa Rica and the United States, which also qualified by winning single-match playoffs earlier in the day.

Kevin Magaña gave the Mexicans a seventh minute lead to silence the capacity crowd. The influential Kevin Lara worked his way into the right side of the Honduran box and delivered a cross that the Guadalajara midfielder nodded home from eight-yards out.

Eight minutes later, Claudio Zamudio doubled the advantage with his third CU17 goal. Once again, Lara provided the service from the right, whipping in a cross that Zamudio headed from seven yards beyond right-diving goalkeeper Michael Perello.

Mexico put the game out of reach four minutes after the break through Ulises Torres. A right-sided free kick — pumped diagonally into the Honduran box — was headed to the top of the six-yard box, where Torres found the back of the net with his left foot.

The FIFA U-17 World Cup will be played October 17-November 8, 2015, in Chile.

Previous Honduras vs Mexico matches and Historical Accounts:

Honduras vs Mexico

Honduras National Football Team faced off vs Mexico again on Thursday the 6th of October, 2014 at the Estadio Zoque VMR in Tuxtla Gutierrez where Mexico defeated the Honduran team by a score of 2 – 0.

(International friendlies: October 9, 2014, away Honduras vs Mexico; October 14, 2014, away Honduras vs USA)

Honduras head coach Hernan Medford announced his roster for the away friendlies against Mexico and the United States on October 9 (Tuxtla Gutierrez) and October 14 (Boca Raton, Florida), respectively.
 
Of the 21 players selected, 10 were part of the squad that finished fifth in the Central American Cup (CCA) earlier this month. That placement secured the Catrachos a playoff meeting with the team that ultimately finishes fifth in November’s Caribbean Cup for a berth in the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Honduras National Soccer Team Player Maynor Figueroa

Honduras vs Mexico and Honduras vs USA Soccer matches will mark the return of key Football Stars like Maynor Figueroa

 
The matches will mark the return of key performers Maynor Figueroa (Hull City/England) and Victor Bernardez (San Jose Earthquakes/USA). Neither veteran participated in the CCA, indicating after the World Cup that they would assess their national team futures.
 
“Nobody is obligated in this group,” said Medford. “All players come from conviction and that is the case for Figueroa and Bernardez with whom I talked on the phone before making the official announcement of their call-ups.”
 
A surprise invitation was extended to young Olimpia forward Alberth Elis. The rising star, who played in four games in the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup, has netted once in this season’s CONCACAF Champions League and also scored a goal against Panama in Central American qualifying for the 2015 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship.
 
“Elis is having a great season with Olimpia, despite being a player of 18-years-old,” expressed Medford. “He has shown a lot of maturity and I think is ready to be part of the senior squad.”
 
After a challenging Central American Cup, Medford views the encounters against the pair of CONCACAF powers as a new beginning.
 
“Football is about opportunities,” finished the former Real España manager. “Some of those who went to the Central American Cup have no advantage. Now we focus on those who have experience in order to cope with two major rivals such as Mexico and the United States.”
Honduras coach Hernán Evaristo Medford Bryan is a retired Costa Rican football player and currently manager of the Honduras national football team; he has called for patience as he attempts to stamp his authority on the national team.

Medford only replaced Luis Fernando Suarez in July, and he guided Honduras to two wins and as two losses at the Copa Centroamericana.

The Costa Rican born coach named 18-year-old debutant Alberth Elis in the 20-man team.

“There are players who for the first time I meet and why I always say, time is the least I have and that is what I have always needed time,” Medford said.

 Honduras will convene on October 6 in Tegucigalpa, before traveling two days later to Mexico.

Mexico will host fellow CONCACAF member Honduras in front of a sell-out crowd at the Estadio Zoque in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas.
