Match Preview

In this round of Concacaf Gold Cup, Honduras VS Grenada. The Hondurans come into this competition struggling to find their form and in a bit of a transition period that they hope can see them turn their fortunes around on the international stage.After qualifying for back-back World Cups in 2010 and 2014, they lost out to Australia for a spot at the 2018 tournament, and it has been downhill for them pretty much since then.They carried that disappointment of missing the last World Cup with them into the 2019 Gold Cup, where they finished bottom of their group with only three points from three games, failing to make the knockout stage for the second time in their last three appearances at this tournament.This year we are likely to see many new faces in the Honduran team, with three players who have yet to earn an international cap and another eight who have yet to hit the double-digit mark when it comes to international appearances.Even though they have not won a competitive game in 90 minutes since 2019, manager Fabian Coito will be pleased with the fight and passion his team showed against Mexico in a 0-0 draw in their final match before this competition.Having failed to qualify for this tournament on successive attempts, the Spice Boys will hope that youth will be served when they hit the field for the Gold Cup on Tuesday.Former Canadian national team coach Michael Findlay has named a relatively inexperienced side, with seven forwards under the age of 25, and for many members of this team, it will be their first appearance for the senior side.The hope is that the youthfulness of this team can create a surprise in a group that will feature three solid and experienced sides who have played together for a long time.In all likelihood, though, this tournament will serve as a measuring stick for Findlay and his team to get some valuable international experience and assess where to move forward with the program.


Honduras possible starting lineup:Lopez; Rodriguez, Figueroa, Pereira, Alvarez; Flores, Acosta, Garcia, Martinez; Bengtson, Elis


Grenada possible starting lineup:Belfon; Pierre, Paul, Paterson, Sterling; John-Brown, Theodore, McQueen; German, Lewis, Charles
