Honduras Coming to South Florida (AGAIN)


It’s no great shock to see the Honduran National Team train in Fort Lauderdale or play a friendly locally. But when the Honduran team arrives in these parts on November 15th to prepare for a November 18th friendly against Peru, they will do so as a nation that has qualified for a World Cup. That alone makes this gathering of Honduras squad unique.

During many of the qualifiers this past year, Reinaldo Rueda has gathered his team in South Florida before flying to Central America or the Caribbean for a match. With the large number of Honduran players currently featuring for European squads, South Florida has become a logical and convenient meeting and training point during the international windows.

We’ll have more coverage of the Honduran team here as they approach this friendly and the nation’s first World Cup since 1982.

The potential Honduran squad for this visit is after the jump.  Wigan’s star defender Maynor Figueroa is injured and is unlikely to be with the team.
