FOOTBALL: Honduras arrive for World Cup qualifier

Published:Monday | October 14, 2013 | 1:28 PM

Honduras national football team arrived in the country last night for its CONCACAF World Cup Qualifier against already eliminated Jamaica at the National Stadium.

The match will be played tomorrow, a day which signals the final set of games in the qualifier.

The Reggae Boyz were eliminated on Friday following an away 2-0 defeat against the USA; while Honduras beat Costa Rica 1-0 in San Pedro Sula to edge closer to a 2014 World Cup berth.

The Reggae Boyz, who are on four points from nine games, will finish at the bottom of the six-team table regardless of the result against Honduras.

Honduras are in third place on 14 points and on track for the region’s final automatic berth entering the match against Jamaica.

The USA and Costa Rica have already clinched berths to the 2014 Brazil World Cup.

The other matches on the day are fourth place Mexico visiting second place Costa Rica and fifth place Panama hosting the first place USA.

All matches will start simultaneously.

The fourth-place finisher will get another chance for a spot in the 32-national field in Brazil.

That team meets Oceania champion New Zealand in a home-and-home playoff.
