France vs Honduras by ELperro

France got the passport to Brazil after finishing in 2nd place in their qualifying group (behind Spain) and after a fantastic turnaround in playoff against Ukraine (lost 2-0 in the 1st leg). In particular, Norway won 4-0, drew with Paraguay and crushed (8-0) Jamaica. This is one of the weakest groups of the World and hopefully France to secure 1st place. This selection has very young players, but they have a lot of quality. Under Mr. Deschamps won a very interesting tactical cohesion, which may be important to them in this test. Have very promising central, lateral high quality and midfield physically imposing, but have players with great ability. However, the Gauls will be without Ribery, the big star, and Nasri (this for other reasons), which clearly take them some quality to the attacker sector (may even have a positive outcome). The absence of these two will be felt more in the game hurt, but I believe that faced with a very limited Honduras, elements like Valbuena, Griezmann (can finally "take the leap") and Benzema (comes from a great season at Real Madrid and is the figure of the selection in this competition) may well create many problems for the Honduran defense. France then expect a domineering, controlling the events, and if they play to their level, should beat soundly.


Honduras succeeded qualified for the World after a good qualifying (given the circumstances), ahead of Mexico. In private meetings, lost to Turkey and Israel, but tied with England. The Honduran selection is the weakest of the group and one of the weaker competition and, in my view, hardly able to move on. They are a team that operates in a 4-4-2, closing far behind and then try to exploit situations counterattack. Essentially worth by demonstrating cohesion on the field and what their advanced that even have quality (Costly for example) can do in such situations of attack. However, there are a selection with little experience and that has clear deficit of talent and quality. The strategy of Hondurans will by trying to unnerve the French (postponing the 1st goal), but I think the full 90 minutes will feel it hard and most likely result will be defeat.


I think it will be a one way game, with France controlling events. Honduras is one of the weakest teams in the tournament, with little experience and quality. Worth by team spirit and fight and may create some problems on the counterattack and succeeded in postponing the 1st goal to the fullest. However, will face an opponent weight, which I think they will create many difficulties. France will be without two of the great figures of his football (especially Ribéry), which desfalcam them enough. However, this aspect can even join the team and have shown that even in the preparatory meeting ahead of Jamaica. Have a very young and talented team, molded by a team Deschamps who instilled the tactical ability. Even without those two, still with a lot of quality legend (Benzema for example) and I believe they can create a lot of chances to score. This year, to have less pressure than in previous editions, and this may be an aspect in its favor. Honduras should have the support of neutral fans (since they are the weakest training), but even so I doubt very much they can get a positive result. I hope then that France imposes its status and quality, and in my opinion are able to make at least two goals.
