Honduras vs Ecuador by JerryDrake
A vencer o morir
This is the headline of a newspaper from Honduras: „win or die!“. This newspaper wrote that Bernardez and Costly have suffered two light injuries but they should both be in the starting line-up. Some players of Honduras are optimistic for this match even without Wilson Palacios, suspended after he has been shown a red card against France.
Tricolor, a ganar
This is an headline in Ecuador. They know that the only result tonight is the victory. For this coach Rueda will use the same players who played with Switzerland. Jefferson Montero was doubt he recovered as well as Felipe Caicedo. Ecuador must win this match and then face France, not the best situation for Rueda and his players.
Dont sit on the wrong bench
Rueda is the actual coach of Ecuador and he was the coach of Honduras in the World Cup in South Africa but he resigned after receiving many critics for the elimination. Honduras played with Chile, Spain and Switzerland. Unbelievable the fact that also Luis Fernando Suarez, coach of Honduras, has been the coach of Ecuador in the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Both know their opponents, both will risk to sit on the wrong bench.
Ecuador should win this match but as we all know, the decisive game was with Switzerland and they lost it. It can happen that Honduras will be more motivated tonight. They lost by many goals but they still have hope. They drew last year in a friendly, 2-2. A draw is useless for both teams.
