Honduras vs Chile – teams announced

| 16.06.2010

The teams for Honduras v Chile have been revealed and both sides have a Suazo who isn’t fit enough to begin the game, which kicks off at 12.30pm.

For Chile, star striker Humberto Suazo misses out, but he could play a part later on from the subs bench.

Honduran forward David Suazo hasn’t recovered from his knock and also begins on the bench.

As expected Chile will go with a three-man defence, with Alexis Sanchez one to look out for in attack. The 21-year-old Udinese forward has 11 goals in 28 internationals and is enticingly priced at 5/1 to score first here.

Ex-Liverpool man Mark Gonzalez misses out though.

Tottenham’s Wilson Palacios has recovered from his injury scare picked up against Romania in a warm-up game and begins in midfield, with the aim of disrupting Chile’s passing style.

36-year-old Carlos Pavon starts up front for Honduras. He has 57 goals in 100 games for his country and is 7/1 to score first.

MLS striker Roger Espinoza will also looking to grab a goal to add to his three in 11 internationals. He’s 5/1 to score at any time.

Maynor Figueroa, who scored from inside his own half for Wigan Athletic last season, also starts.

Bravo, Ponce, Isla, Carmona, Sanchez, Vidal, Valdivia, Fernandez, Beausejour, Orellana, Medel, Rodrigo Millar
