Canada's record against Honduras isn't great, especially recently (as we remember all to well, or have conveniently erased from our memories):
|11/12/83||San Pedro Sula, Honduras||loss||1||3||Friendly|
|14/09/85||St. John's, NF||win||2||1||WCQ|
|28/06/91||Los Angeles, USA||loss||2||4||Gold Cup|
|10/01/96||Anaheim, USA||win||3||1||Gold Cup|
|09/10/04||San Pedro Sula, Honduras||draw||1||1||WCQ|
|10/11/08||San Pedro Sula, Honduras||loss||1||3||WCQ|
Of course we have the two losses from World Cup qualifying, but Canada is also winless against Honduras in their last 5 matches, and hasn't beat the Hondurans in a competitive match since the Gold Cup in '96.
The win in 2000 was a friendly in Winnipeg, my stomping grounds then and now. Sadly I didn't make it out to that match, or the other win in Winnipeg that year, a 1-0 win against Panama in WCQ after it was too late. Of the three Canada matches in the 'Peg that year, I only made it out to the 0-0 draw against Cuba, which remains my only Canada cap.
The difference between Saturday's match and more recent history is that Canada is on a good run of form, while the team Honduras has brought to this Gold Cup is a true 'B' team.
Canada can and should win, and it would be a small but sweet measure of revenge for the losses in 2008. As long as there are no injuries to key players, I feel like Canada should take the match 1-0 or 2-1.
