TEGUCIGALPA.- Honduras’ pre-World Cup itinerary became more clear Sunday, when Alfredo Hawit – General Secretary of the Federación Nacional Autónoma de Fútbol de Honduras – confirmed on the Vistazo Deportivo radio show that the national team has scheduled four friendly internationals.
Hawit said that Tunisia will travel to Honduras for a March 5 encounter with the Catrachos at the Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano in San Pedro Sula.
The second match will be on May 31 against Colombia in either New York or Chicago. Then, head coach Luis Fernando Suarez’s squad will meet Ivory Coast at a location to be determined, before concluding the slate three days later against England at SunLife Stadum in Miami Gardens, Florida.
Prior to the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa, Honduras prepared for the competition with games against the United States, Turkey, Venezuela, Belarus, Azerbaijan and Romania.
For Brazil 2014, the CONCACAF power was drawn into Group E, where it will face France (June 15), Ecuador (June 20) and Switzerland (June 25).
