    Honduras Progreso enthused for comeback bid

    Honduras Progreso (pictured) trains for the second leg of the 2017 Honduran Clausura final against Motagua.

    EL PROGRESO, Honduras – Honduras Progreso is keeping faith that it can rally in the 2017 Honduran Clausura final against Motagua.

    Overcoming a 4-1 loss at home in the series opener will be a tall mountain to climb, but the one-time champion will be targeting redemption in Sunday’s second leg at the Estadio Tiburcio Carias Andino in Tegucigalpa

    It won’t be easy, especially since Motagua is unbeaten in 13 straight matches (8W-5D-0L).

    Honduras Progreso defender Luis Alvarado talked about the keys to a comeback:

    WINNING MINDSET

    “There is nothing left but to pick ourselves off, shake off the dust and try to go win in Tegucigalpa. When we win, we are a team and when we lose we all assume the responsibility.”

    HAVING BELIEF

    “It can be done. It is super difficult, yes, but it is not impossible. We are 11 against 11 on a field of play. They are confident that they are champions. We respect them and we congratulate them for the great job they did in El Progreso, but we are going to do our part.”

    STAYING MENTALLY STRONG

    “It’s all about having a level mindset. When we won, we were not that good, nor now are we the world’s worst. Honduras Progreso is used to suffering, laughing. This defeat has hit us hard, but a battle still remains.”
