• Estadio Azteca, Coyoacán, Ciudad de México (D.F.)
Referee: R. Moreno
• Attendance: 73981
O. Peralta 5'
J. Bengtson 63'
C. Costly 66'
THAT'S IT! Mexico falls to a disastrous 2-1 home loss against Honduras! El Tri's place in the World Cup and Chepo's job are both in big jeopardy
Bengtson and Moreno get into a bit of a skirmish as the Revolution forward goes down and the Mexican defender thinks he's time wasting. Mexico about to have a disastrous loss
Chicharito fires just wide from distance, but Valladares got a touch for a corner
BENGTSON MISS! Espinoza sets the Revolution up perfectly with a squared ball and the forward somehow misses from eight yards out with the goal gaping. TERRIBLE miss.
Long hopeful ball upfield by Mexico goes straight to Valladares. Crowd getting restless now
Mexico off the crossbar!! A cross pops into the air at the six yard line and Aquino's header is just off the bar. Will El Tri get a better chance than that?
Reyes gets the ball in the box, but under no pressure, his through ball is way too far. Not a great evening for the young center back
Will Honduras sit back now? Mexico starting to regain a foothold, but the Catrachos just struck a deadly one-two punch
And here come Chicharito. Not a surprise there. Mexico desperately needs a goal, and probably two
Yellow CardCarlo Costly
ANOTHER GOAL HONDURAS! 2-1! UNBELIEVABLE! Costly takes advantage of a long clearance as Reyes misplays, and he fires low and into the far corner. Mexico in big big trouble now
GOAL HONDURAS! Bengtson scores after a soft rebound by Corona. Probably the first good chance by the Catrachos all game
Honduras with a spell of possession, but a cross is far too close to Corona, who collects
Yellow CardB. García
Torrado will miss the game against the USA on Tuesday after that yellow card
Now the yellows are starting to fly, as Boniek gets carded for a late challenge. Free kick for Mexico
Yellow CardGerardo Torrado
Torrado picks up a yellow for a rough challenge
Corner for El Tri, and it's almost a headed goal, but it goes through the box and out for a corner
Honduras has brought Bengtson in for Najar at the half
We're back underway in the second half!
Halftime! Mexico finally broke its scoreless streak at home, but Honduras is still in the game, just down 1-0
45' + 2'
Yellow CardV. Bernárdez
45' + 1'
Bernardez down injured for Honduras, but he still picks up a yellow after dishing out an elbow to the back of Peralta's head. That would be a massive loss for the visitors
Corner for El Tri as it looks to end the half with a second.
Nearly a great ball by Gimenez to find the streaking Reyna from midfield, but just a bit too far
Honduras finally starting to get a bit of a foothold in the match, as El Tri needs a couple good tackles to break up attacks
Bad turnover by Honduras, but a saving tackle prevents a breakaway for Mexico. The Catrachos looking shaky so far
Dos Santos strikes off the wall and out for a corner
Reyna blocks Valladares' clearance in another scary moment for the visitors, but his cross is cleared away. Still all El Tri right now as it earns a free kick in a dangerous spot
Great work in the box by Gio, but his cross is just headed away
Turnover by Honduras in a dangerous spot, but Peralta is unable to take a good first touch and the ball goes out for a goal kick
That early goal seems to have lifted a weight off the shoulders of El Tri, which is keeping the ball well and dominating the game so far
Mexico keeping up the pressure here, earning a free kick from 40 yards out. Gimenez does well to get the shot on goal but it's straight to Valladares
Free kick for Honduras goes off the wall and out for a corner, but the visitors can't make anything of the corner kick
GOAL MEXICO!! Peralta scores in front off a feed from Dos Santos. The Villarreal man played in behind the Honduras defense with plenty of space, and he easily squares to Peralta for the tap-in in front of goal
AssistGiovani dos Santos
Espinoza appears to have his foot stepped on by a Mexico player, but the Wigan midfielder is good to continue
Mexico with some early possession, as Reyna is nearly slipped in behind the defense, but it's out for a goal kick
We are underway!
The players are coming onto the pitch for anthems. We should be underway in about 10 minutes!
The big news for Mexico is that Chicharito has to settle for a place on the bench after just returning from injury last weekend. Diego Reyes also starts in place of Maza Rodriguez at center back
And for Honduras: Valladares, Figueroa, Bernardez, Izaguirre, Palacios, Beckeles, García, Costly, Espinoza, Garrido, Najar
Here is your Mexico lineup tonight: Corona, Meza, Reyes, Moreno, Salcido, Torrado, Arce, Gimenez, Reyna, Dos Santos, Peralta.
