Honduras released its list of players it will use against Mexico on Aug. 20 in a World Cup qualifier.
The list includes a pair of MLS players in Amado Guevara and Ivan Guerrero.
Honduras and Mexico played a memorable game in Azteca, of course. Back in November 2001 Honduras needed a win to get into the 2002 World Cup and knock Mexico out in the process but that didn't happen as Mexico won 3-0 behind goals from Francisco Palencia and Cuauhtemoc Blanco.
This will be just as difficult for Honduras. Not only is the game in Azteca but Mexico will play for the first time under Sven Goran Eriksson, who will likely have his squad fired up for the game.
For Honduras and the other two teams in the group - Jamaica and Canada - the key will be to win at home. They'll need to win at home and hope for a draw or two on the road. If any of the three can get a result in Mexico - even just a draw would be monumental - that team will have a great chance of getting through to the semifinal round.
I cut and pasted this list from MedioTiempo.com and they organized it by players based outside of Honduras and their domestic contingent so that's how I'm pasting it here. Sorry for the confusion.
David Suazo (Inter), Julio César León (Parma), Edgar Alvarez (Roma), Carlos Costly (Belchatow, Polonia), Amado Guevara (Toronto), Wilson Palacios, Maynor Figueroa (Wigan), Iván Guerrero (DC United).
