Both Honduras and Switzerland still have a chance to board for the next level if they one can win in this crucial Group E match.
Honduras have never won a game for this World Cup, but are still hoping. Switzerland looks like they are running out of luck as they enter this match defeated by France last week in a humiliating 2-5.
Who will be ousted from the tournament, and who can progress up to the Round of 16?
Switzerland were very lucky in their opener against Ecuador, as they scored a miraculous last-minute goal, which left Ecuador shocked and defeated at 2-1. However, their next game was a different story, it was not a success story.
France showed the Swiss that there is more to football than luck, as they completely dominated them in a game that resulted in a 2-5 score in favour of the Les Bleus.
Because of that, Switzerland is now in a tie with Ecuador, which also has a game at the same time this day. The Swiss imports will need to win against Ecuador to secure a spot for the next round.
On the other hand, Honduras have not won any of their games between France and Ecuador. However, they managed to achieve their first World Cup goal in five matches, thanks to striker Carlo Costly.
Honduras team manager, Luis Fernando Suarez promised that his team will do their best, and fight with all that is left, against the Swiss team. Even if Honduras fails to qualify for the next match, a win for this match can already make them proud.
For Honduras to meet the requirements for the Round of 16, they must win over Switzerland with a substantial goal difference. Also, Ecuador should be defeated by France.
