The CONCACAF qualifiers always produce some very entertaining matches for the neutral fan. Costa Rica vs Honduras should provide the same entertainment value especially considering both of these teams are desperate for their first win of the campaign.
Both of these sides have gotten off to a rocky start for their World Cup qualifiers and both sides will be considering this game to be a must win. Getting to the world cup currently seems like it is miles away for both of these sides but a win on Friday evening may just be the spark that both of them desperately need to get going.
Honduras began their CONCACAF campaign with 2 pretty decent draws against Panama and El Salvador. However, if the Hondurans were going to have a realistic chance of qualifying to the world cup, these were the sort of games they needed to be winning. After a 4-1 humbling by the US, Honduras now come into this must win fixture low on confidence. They will need to rally together to keep their World Cup hopes alive against Costa Rica on Friday.
Costa Rica are very much in the same boat as the Hondurans after a poor start to their qualifying matches. They managed to pick up draws against Jamaica and Panama but were comfortably beaten by Mexico. The Costa Ricans have been unlucky so far, as they have played some good football but have simply been far too toothless in attack. They will be looking to rectify that on Friday against a lackluster Honduran side.
