Honduras suffered a 2-2draw with El Salvador and the result continued to keep the team behind Canada in the World Cup qualification campaign.
The national team was very much in need of a good result from this game especially since it was at home. However, manager Jorge Pinto was sent off to the stands by referee Ricardo Montero Costa Rica and he was unable to make much impact on the match. Mexico are the overwhelming favourites to win the group and qualify for the World Cup 2018. However, the second spot is certainly up for grabs and a win would have put Honduras back in the midst.
