Honduras Nats/News

Honduras head to Hong Kong without stars


8 February 2002 (www.TEAMtalk.com) -

Honduras travel to Hong Kong on Friday for the Carlsberg Cup but will have to do without the services of Milton Nunez and Carlos Pavon.
Honduras will play Slovenia on February 12 in their first game since World Cup Qualifying in November.

The Honduran Federation had asked for the release of Nunez from his Guatemalan team Comunicaciones, but the Cremas refused because of their involvement in their domestic cup competition.

Instead, Comunicaciones will release him to play against the United States on March 2 in Seattle and Japan in April.

Italian-based Carlos Pavon has been recently loaned from Udinese to Serie B side Napoli and will also not travel so he can acclimate himself to his new club.

Austrian-based Juan Carcamo and Julio Suazo will also not make the trip due to injury, and neither will starting goalkeeper Noel Valladares.

Honduran new technical director made an emergency recall on Thursday for Victoria's Cristian Martinez, Platense's Clifford Laing and Olimpia's Wílmer Velasquez.

Squad:

Víctor Coello (Marathón), Jaime Rosales (Marathón), Emil Martínez (Marathón), Robel Bernárdez (Motagua), José Luis Pineda (Olimpia), Limbert Pérez (Olimpia), Ricardo Canales (Victoria), Ronald Maradiaga (Victoria), David Cárcamo (Real España), Sergio Mendoza (Real España), Rony Morales (Platense), Edgar Alvarez (Platense), Amado Guevara (Zacatepec-Mex), Clifford Laing (Platense), Cristian Martinez (Victoria), Wilmer Velasquez (Olimpia), David Suazo (Cagliari-Ita), Oscar Bonilla (Bellavista (Uruguay), Saúl Martínez (Nacional (Uruguay), Samuel Caballero (Udinese-Ita), Julio César de León (Reggina-Ita)

No Pavon...no Nuñez

Honduras flexed their muscles!

Barely missed the WC finals, Honduras trashed one of this year's WC finalists, Slovenia, 5-1! I wish those who think CONCACAF is weak would not pay any attention to this!

Martinez starts Year of the Horse at a gallop

HONG KONG, Feb 12 (AFP)

Honduras made a flying start to the Year of the Horse with a 5-1 rout of World Cup qualifiers Slovenia in the opening match of Hong Kong's Lunar New Year tournament here on Tuesday.p
Striker Saul Martinez was the star for the Central Americans, grabbing four goals in a display of pace and power that the Slovene defence could not cope with.
Slovenia went into the match as slight favourites after emerging as one of the surprise qualifiers from the tough European zone qualifying for this summer's World Cup in Japan and South Korea.
But with Honduras dominating the opening exchanges, it came as no surprise when Martinez put them ahead five minutes before half-time after calmly rounding goalkeeper Marko Simeunovic.
Playmaker Zlatko Zahovic got Slovenia back on level terms from the penalty spot eight minutes after the break after Limber Perez pulled down Amir Karic.
But the respite proved brief and Martinez soon restored the Central Americans' advantage with the best goal of the afternoon after 58 minutes.
Picking the ball up 35 yards out, he turned and rode two tackles before placing his shot into the top corner from just outside the area.
Nine minutes later, Martinez again outpaced his markers and slotted home from just inside the box.
Martinez rounded off a fine afternoon's work in the 73rd minute when he managed to get his outstretched boot to a low cross from Honduras skipper Amado Guevara.
The star striker then made way for name-sake Cristian Martinez, who rounded off the rout with a powerful run and blast right on the stroke of full-time.
The closest Slovenia went to scoring in open play was in the 7th minute when Milenko Acimovic saw his glancing header from a Zahovic free kick bounce clear off the post.
Slovenia coach Srecko Katanec played down the significance of a drubbing that does not augur well for the rest of his squad's World Cup preparations.
"We were without six key players, two of our team only arrived this morning after 20-hour flights, so I don't think you can make too much of this.
"Honduras played well but we were at less than 50 percent of what we will be in the World Cup."
Slovenia face Spain, South Africa and Paraguay in their opening round group in the World Cup.
Honduras will now play in the final of the tournament against either China or a Hong Kong XI, who were due to play each other later Tuesday.

Great for HONDURAS !!!!!!!!!!!

Final Recap

Honduras win Hong Kong tournament


15 February 2002 (www.TEAMtalk.com) -

Saul Martinez scored his fifth goal of the tournament as Honduras beat Hong Kong XI 1-0 on Friday to win the Lunar New Year tournament.
It is the second win of the tournament for Ernesto Luzardo's Catrachos who stunned Slovenia on Tuesday with a five-goal outburst.

Uruguayan-based Martinez continued his stunning performance in the tournament heading home the game-winner in the 67th minute.

The game was even until the hour mark when Honduras had a lapse in concentration that nearly cost them the match.

Hong Kong's Brazilian striker Filho headed right at Honduras keeper Victor Coello from in-close in the 62nd minute.

The Hondurans were awakened five minutes later when Hong Kong failed to clear the ball out on the right side, and the ball came down to midfielder Julio Cesar de Leon. He crossed the ball into Martinez who put the ball inside Fan Chun Yip's goal at the near post.

Slovenia had earlier claimed third spot in the tournament with a 4-3 win on penalties over fellow World Cup qualifiers China after a dour 0-0 draw.

Honduras return to action in two weeks for another friendly with the United States in Seattle on March 2.

Hong Kong: Fan Chun Yip, Carlo Hartwig, Cristiano Cordeiro, Gerard Ambassa, Yau Kin Wai, (Luk Koon Pong, 83), Lo Kai Wah (Cornelius Udebuluzor, 45), Gary McKeown, Aberdal Filho, Poon Yiu Cheuk, Au Wai Lun (Cheng Sin Siu), Keith Gumbs

Honduras: Victor Coello, Samuel Caballero, Jaime Rosales, David Carcamo, Limber Perez (Edgar Alvarez, 80), Jose Luis Pineda, Serglo Mendoza, Amado Guevara, Ronny Morales, Julio Cesar de Leon, Saul Martinez (Cristian Martinez 88).

Back on Saul......The MLS rejected him !!!! Need I say some more ?????

U.S. faces Honduras on Saturday in exhibition match

March 1, 2002

SEATTLE (Ticker) --

The United States faces Honduras on Saturday at Safeco Field in one of the last looks coach Bruce Arena will have at his MLS-based players before he must make some roster decisions.

The U.S. will be looking to improve on its 4-1-1 record for the year. The match gets under way at 4 p.m. EST and will be televised live on ESPN.

Since the Honduras and Ecuador (March 10th in Birmingham) fixtures do not fall on official FIFA dates, Arena's team had to be composed almost entirely of domestic-based players, plus some who are struggling to find a first-team place with their European clubs.

Much like the U.S., coach Ernesto Omar Luzardo also has chosen a mix of veterans and debutantes for his team. As a result of these not being official FIFA dates, some players have struggled to get released from their clubs as well.

Earlier in the week, the hatchet fell on Washington native Kasey Keller, who was recalled from the Ecuador friendly to warm the bench at Tottenham Hotspur.

"It will give us a chance to start Tim Howard in Birmingham, which we9re excited about," said Arena, who was clearly unhappy with Tottenham9s decision.

"People are definitely fighting for positions," added Crystal Palace defender Gregg Berhalter. "Bruce wants everyone to be competitive and he wants to field the strongest team possible."

Honduras presents an interesting tests for the Americans. The countries met twice during CONCACAF region World Cup qualifying last year, with each team winning on the road.

U.S. blanks Honduras in soccer friendly

March 3, 2002


The fiery midfielder who sparked the United States to its World Cup berth dispelled any doubts about his ability or fitness Saturday at SafeCo Field, scoring twice in a 4-0 blanking of Honduras before some 30,000 fans.

Donovan, a teenage phenom, added a pair of his own to bring down the hammer and surely cement his place in the starting lineup.

The news should be heartening to American fans, who eagerly have been awaiting the chance to see what Mathis and Donovan could do paired with Brian McBride. The answer? Be very dangerous.

McBride had three assists and was involved in the fourth goal as the trio gave the Honduran defense fits.

"This was a good way for me to come back and get a sniff," said Mathis, who was sidelined for much of 2001 after undergoing knee surgery. "I watched a lot of soccer during that time and just did a lot of rehabilitation, getting my leg strong, but this was a great way to come back."

The U.S. came out strong from the start. Coach Bruce Arena allegedly had challenged his forwards to score three times, and they did not waste time. It took just 14 minutes for Mathis to strike.

"I think this was a really good afternoon for us," Arena said. "We played really well and got a good effort out of the guys today. It was good to get Pope and Mathis back on the field and Donovan had a really solid performance. I think that Clint is a couple of months away from full match fitness, and he knows it."

Defender Jeff Agoos sparked the goal by serving the ball on a restart following Sergio Mendoza's takedown of McBride in the 13th minute. A swinging, long cross into the box, it found McBride's head. And with a deft flick, he shoveled the ball to Mathis, who headed the ball home past a startled Victor Coello.

The attacks continued as DaMarcus Beasley, McBride, Donovan and Mathis all had further chances on goal. Mathis nearly returned the favor to McBride in the 25th when he fed the lanky striker a strong cross across the box with which McBride should have done more. Instead, he headed it into Coello's arms despite being all alone.

Donovan and Beasley both enjoyed breakaways but were foiled -- until the 44th minute.

Chris Armas sparked the second American goal with a dazzling run from the halfway line, beating three defenders to slot a pass into Donovan. Donovan deftly brought down Coello by dribbling around him and calmly slid in the ball. The 19-year old made it look easy.

"We don't give up too many goals," Donovan said. "If we get two goals in the first half like we did, we were very comfortable going forward."

Mathis got his second in the 57th minute when second-half substitute Eddie Lewis sprung Beasley down the left gutter. Running the overlap, Lewis received the ball again and delivered a rare, perfect cross that found a diving McBride at the near goalpost. Again, he headed it on to Mathis.

Mathis almost got a hat trick, bouncing a free kick off the crossbar and post in the 63rd minute after Donovan was upended at the edge of the area.

Donovan netted his second in the 67th minute as he seized a loose ball in the box after Richard Mulrooney and McBride combined to create havoc. Again, Donovan coolly hold the ball around Coello and slipped it past him.

This was definitely not the same Hondo team that I saw in RFK last September. On the other hand, If Martinez was not stuffed by Keller in the 28th minute and had scored the equalizer, the outcome would certainly be different then.

USA will have tougher tests in front of them before WC. Their friendlies will include powerhouses such as Germany and Netherland.
