Team profile

They may be rank outsiders, but Honduras can take heart from their previous World Cup appearance. Back in 1982 they were the least-fancied team in their group but held hosts Spain to a 1-1 draw, having led 1-0 at half-time. A draw against Northern Ireland followed and then an unlucky 1-0 loss to Yugoslavia, which saw them eliminated with their heads held high.

Now, 28 years on, they find themselves in a group with Spain again. The meeting in Johannesburg on 21 June is unlikely to produce another draw but Honduras could still make an impact in Group H. Many of their squad play abroad which, according to their Colombian coach Reinaldo Rueda, has given the players added confidence and belief in their ability to ruffle some feathers in South Africa.
