Obviously, before the excuses and reasons get trotted out, the first thing to say is that Honduras fans are gutted. No fan likes to have their side knocked out of the group stage of a World Cup, but even less so when A) upsets are happening left and right and B) this was seen as a very good Honduras side.

On Monday 21 Honduras will play the role of the underdog; a team that has nothing to lose and everything to win. It’s our effort vs. their expertise, our heart vs. their pressure. “The favorite’s nightmare” which Huggel mentioned, will be an even more decisive factor for Spain this time.

All Honduras fans are hoping that striker Georgie Welcome won't be distracted by all the rumors linking him to Scottish Premier League side Rangers. Welcome's 23 goals in 63 games for current Liga Nacional side Motagua is already drawing close attention to his talents before the tournament has even kicked off. Rangers will more than likely be looking for a quick resolution in the hope of snapping up the forward before a potential 'transfer fee increasing' tournament performance.

Honduras coach Reinaldo Rueda has named his 23-man World Cup squad and seven reserves in case of injuries.

Instead of naming a 30-man preliminary group, Rueda decided to reveal the 23 players to compete in South Africa next month, while seven more will be available if required.

England-based trio Wilson Palacios, Hendry Thomas and Maynor Figueroa are part of the squad, along with experienced duo David Suazo and Carlos Pavon, while Georgie Welcome is the surprise replacement for the injured Carlo Costly.
