Live Commentary

  • 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'
    SubstitutionCarlo 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'
    SubstitutionGerardo Torrado Javier Hernández

    And here come Chicharito. Not a surprise there. Mexico desperately needs a goal, and probably two

    Goal Carlo Costly

    SubstitutionÁ. 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'
    SubstitutionB. 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

  • 54'
    Yellow Card Gerardo Torrado
  • 54'
    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
  • 46'
    SubstitutionA. Najar J. Bengtson
  • 46'
    Honduras has brought Bengtson in for Najar at the half
  • 46'
    We're back underway in the second half!

  • 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.
