5′ O. Peralta
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
 
90′
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
 
88′
Chicharito fires just wide from distance, but Valladares got a touch for a corner
 
86′
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.
 
84′
Long hopeful ball upfield by Mexico goes straight to Valladares. Crowd getting restless now
 
80′
Substitution C. Costly Marvin Chávez
 
80′
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?
 
77′
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
 
71′
Will Honduras sit back now? Mexico starting to regain a foothold, but the Catrachos just struck a deadly one-two punch
 
69′
Substitution Gerardo Torrado Javier Hernández
 
69′
And here come Chicharito. Not a surprise there. Mexico desperately needs a goal, and probably two
 
67′
Yellow Card C. Costly
 
66′
Assist E. Izaguirre
 
66′
Goal C. Costly
 
66′
Substitution Á. Reyna J. Aquino
 
65′
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
 
64′
GOAL HONDURAS! Bengtson scores after a soft rebound by Corona. Probably the first good chance by the Catrachos all game
 
63′
Goal J. Bengtson
 
63′
Honduras with a spell of possession, but a cross is far too close to Corona, who collects
 
60′
Substitution B. García E. Álvarez
 
58′
Yellow Card B. García
 
58′
Torrado will miss the game against the USA on Tuesday after that yellow card
 
57′
Now the yellows are starting to fly, as Boniek gets carded for a late challenge. Free kick for Mexico
 
56′
Substitution Christian Giménez Jose Andrés Guardado
 
54′
Yellow Card Gerardo Torrado
 
54′
Torrado picks up a yellow for a rough challenge
 
52′
Corner for El Tri, and it's almost a headed goal, but it goes through the box and out for a corner
 
46′
Substitution A. Najar J. Bengtson
 
46′
Honduras has brought Bengtson in for Najar at the half
 
46′
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 Card V. 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
 
44′
Corner for El Tri as it looks to end the half with a second.
 
39′
Nearly a great ball by Gimenez to find the streaking Reyna from midfield, but just a bit too far
 
31′
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
 
28′
Bad turnover by Honduras, but a saving tackle prevents a breakaway for Mexico. The Catrachos looking shaky so far
 
26′
Dos Santos strikes off the wall and out for a corner
 
24′
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
 
22′
Great work in the box by Gio, but his cross is just headed away
 
20′
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
 
18′
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
 
17′
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
 
9′
Free kick for Honduras goes off the wall and out for a corner, but the visitors can't make anything of the corner kick
 
6′
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
 
5′
Assist Giovani dos Santos
 
5′
Goal O. Peralta
 
4′
Espinoza appears to have his foot stepped on by a Mexico player, but the Wigan midfielder is good to continue
 
2′
Mexico with some early possession, as Reyna is nearly slipped in behind the defense, but it's out for a goal kick
 
1′
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.
