The Case for Honduras: Big plays from small players. That’s the key for Honduras here. Honduras has an old, untalented team of players with no real experience. It’s a bad team and only if they step up twice as well as the North Koreans did today, will they have a chance.
The Case for Chile: Chile’s gameplan? Blitz. I love the Chilean strategy. It’s all ‘score score score’ and nothing else. Go to hell defense, put some strikers in… go to hell midfielders, bring in some strikers. And against a team like Honduras it’s going to pay off! It’s too bad they lost Suazo for this game, but doubt they’ll miss him.
Who’s the Key? I like Matias Fernandez to be impressive out there. He’s very talented and will likely bring out the best among other team members. For Honduras, it’s got to be defender Maynor Figueroa who’s going to have a tough time defending the Chilean onslaught.
Who Wins? Chile’s offensive mindset will prevail, controlling the ball and making most of the game play out in Honduran territory. 2-0 Chile.
