Honduras also started off their World Cup campaign on a losing note as they were defeated by Chile 1-0 in their first match. There are few people who believe Honduras could reach the next round from this group. However, given all the upsets appearing from other groups, Honduras can also look to make it to the knock-out round.

Honduras missed their best striker David Suazo in the first match, but it seems he is very close to his full recovery from his thigh injury. However, it is less likely he would start against Spain. Given the attacking intent of Spaniards, Honduras would heavily rely on defensive midfielder Wilson Palacios. The Tottenham Hotspur player played a key role in their World Cup qualifiers.

It is expected that Spain would go for all out attack against Honduras from the very beginning of the encounter, knowing that anything less than 3 points from the affair would make their hopes of knock out stage further bleak. Spain had better ball possession against Switzerland, but the European champions failed to bring out a goal.

Spain would most probably stick to the starting line up featured against Switzerland. Coach Vicente del Bosque could face selection dilemma over his midfield which features a number of top class players including Xavi, Xabi, Fàbregas, Iniesta, Busquets and Silva.

There are many who suggest Arsenal playmaker Fàbregas should start against Honduras. However, it seems less likely that coach del Bosque would change his midfield line up: Xavi, Xabi, Iniesta and David Silva. In attack, Spain has two prolific scorers in Fernando Torres and David Villa.


Spain would win the match 2-0. The Spaniards should not have any problem to find the net against Honduras. Overall, it seems Honduras defense would face a far greater test against Spain.
