The Honduran national team has been characterized by complicating the transit of the Mexico national team in the World Cup Qualifiers and precisely Carlo Costley, one of the legendary Honduran strikers and executioners of the Trí, assured that the tie is going to be big for the Aztecs.
One of the forwards who was present at the ‘Aztecazo’ of Honduras and recurring in the catracha victories over Mexico, assured that their rivals have been having problems to make the Qualifiers something easier and their superiority has already been left in the background by selections such as those of United States and Canada.
“This tie is already too big for Mexico, I’m not saying it, it has been seen in the results and matches. That’s where it might be difficult for him to go to this World Cup. I think that the United States is catching up with Mexico, before they were superior in every way to the Concacaf teams, in structure, in pitches and all that. Now, the United States already has all that, it is more, better stadiums than in Mexico“Carlo Costly pointed out to Fox Sports.
Mexico only has one victory in 24 years when visiting Honduras
Although the statistics are often broken, in the Mexican case it seems that they are overextended and the team he leads Gerardo “Tata” Martinohas not been able to get out of San Pedro Sula in moments of direct qualification for the World Cup and his only victory was in 2018 in the regular round.
Mexico must overcome Honudras in order to qualify directly for the next World Cup in Qatar 2022, in the absence of a date to conclude the Concacaf qualifiers.
