Chile Hot, Honduras Not

Group H Match

Honduras vs Chile
in Nelspruit

Central America vs South America; Hispanic through and through.

In the second minute, a Matías Fernández free-kick, for Chile, floated closer to the bar than most we've seen so far; as Chile tried to put their stamp on the game early.

It was almost twenty minutes before Honduras looked in the game; earning a corner on the right. Chile broke out and almost scored at the other end.

Honduras may feel disappointed about how they conceded the goal but Chile deserved to take take the lead in the 34th minute; as Mauricio Isla's cross from the right was knocked onto an in-sliding Jean Beausejour, by an Honduran defender.

Chile continued to push forward and overwhelm Honduras with their movement.

Honduras ended the half with a free-kick from thirty three metres, which earned them a corner. Otherwise, it was all Chile.

Half-time: 0:1

The referee from Seychelles seemed to struggle with the big calls, missing two penalty shouts and ignoring a dive. If it wasn't a dive, Palacios should have had a second booking, for a foul on the edge of the area.

Maynor Figueroa twice saved Honduras at the back and Chile missed the opportunity to go two goals in front, when Waldo Ponce failed to put a diving header between the posts.

Eddy Maillet can forget about blowing the whistle at the World Cup Final after this performance, when he missed another booking for handball. Matías Fernández had his goal disallowed, but for the wrong reason - Alexis Sánchez handled the ball across, rather than offside.

At the end, Chile were too hot for Honduras and the scoreline doesn't tell the real story.
