Match and Result: Honduras vs Chile (16 Jun 2010)This will be updated after game time.

Winner: Chile
Score: Honduras(0) vs Chile(1)
34′ Jean Beausejour (Chile)

Recap

It was a great win for Chile fitting for how they dominated the entire game. This team has scored 32 goals in the qualifiers and the way they attacked and broken down the Honduras defense showed how potent their scoring abilities are.

Jean Beausejour scored a goal on the 34th minute and the lone goal for Chile doesn’t justify how dominant they were. More than midway the first half, Chile already had 63 possessions against Hondura’s 37 possessions.

Man of the Match was Alexis Sanchez who delivered a spectacular game via his crisp, accurate passing, timely attack and fluid orchestration. This guy is only 21 years old and barring injuries, he could just be a force to reckon with on two to three more FIFA World Cups.

Key Takeaway

Chile was touted to win this game and the team did not disappoint. I believe they should have scored more goals had it not been for successive saves by the Hondura’s goalkeeper.

Honduras-Chile, Group H, Nelspruit, Friday 16 June, 13.30 (local time)

Why Chile would win?

Chile is stronger on paper and their coach Marcelo Bielsa is employing a 3-3-1-3 formation anchored on Humberto Suaza who has two speedy and experienced wingers in Alexis Sanchex and Mark Gonzalez. Humberto Suaza has scored ten goals during the qualifying and could score another goal today. The problem however is the injury that Humberto Suaza has suffered on his muscle strain. He is still recuperating and how fit he is would determine the efficiency of the formation of Marcelo Bielsa.

Why Honduras would win?

Honduras has a stronger offense anchored on Wilson Palacios who is looking to shutdown or deflect the formation of Chile. Given that Chile might be having health problems could work well on Honduras. They can do what Korea did against Brazil who played safely waiting for the right time to counterattack.

Key Takeaway

I hope this isn’t one of those boring games where it ends up in a draw like that of Portugal and Ivory Coast. Brazil failed to dazzle, and games like South Africa on the opening round and that of France didn’t live up to expectations.
