Pre-Game:
The Honduras National Soccer Team will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing showing at this summers’ CONCACAF Gold Cup where defeats to USA and Haiti and a draw with Panama saw them make an early exit from the competition for the first time in twelve years.

The Honduran “Seleccion” qualified for the World Cup in Brazil 2014 but didn’t get past the first round with defeats to France, Ecuador and Switzerland.

Since Brazil, Honduras have managed to win just four games in 19 outings and desperately need a morale boosting win here.

Honduras has played against Venezuela eleven times to date. This will be the twelfth match between the two countries.

The first two games between Honduras and Venezuela were on the the 7th and 14th of February 1982. The first game against Copa Ciudad Merida was won by Honduras by a score of 3 -1 and the second against Univeridad de Los andes Honduras lost by a score of 2 -1.

This twelfth game will be against Vinotino who has five wins, 2 draws and four loses.

The first encounter vs Venezuela in Honduras was on January 22nd 1984 in Tegucigalpa. Honduras defeated Venezuela 2 – 0 with goals scored by Carlos Caballero and Antonio Laing.

Venezuela is coming into this game vs Honduras with two loses on its back against Peru and Brazil.

UPDATE: Wednesday February 4th 2015 Honduras was defeated by Venezuela by a final score of 3 – 2  at the Olympic Stadium in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. This was New Honduras National Team Head Coach Jorge Luis Pinto’s first match.

Venezuela’s Figuera and Farias put the result seemingly beyond doubt in the second half after Blanco opened the scoring in the 21st minute, though Honduras threatened a comeback with two goals in the final 10 minutes.

In the first match of their double-header, Honduras enjoyed large spells of possession during the early exchanges.

However it was Venezuela, who broke the deadlock against the run of play in the 21st minute

Romulo Otero drove towards the byline before squaring the ball across the six-yard box to Blanco, who side-footed past goalkeeper Donis Escober.

Honduras almost drew level 13 minutes later when Alain Baroja fumbled the ball but Roman Castillo was unable to release a shot in time.

Castillo was a constant threat for the Venezuelan defenders and came close again to equalising a minute into the second half but his shot sailed over the crossbar.

Honduras were punished for their wastefulness in front of goal yet again, with Figuera doubling Venezuela’s lead five minutes into the second half.

Figuera scooped the ball over Escober, having been played in by team-mate Argenis Gomez.

The Honduras continued to dictate the tempo but it proved to be in vain as Venezuela netted their third goal 13 minutes from time.

Oteru, who set up the first goal, weaved his way past three defenders before crossing the ball to the near post where substitute Farias made no mistake from close range.

Honduras finally managed to turn their possession into a goal 10 minutes from time, with Antony Lozano poking the ball beyond Baroja following a shot from outside the area.

And centre-back Juan Montes pulled another goal back in the 90th minute to ensure a nervy finale.
