The Honduras vs Turkey (Turquia) match will take place this Thursday, May 29, 2014 (5:00 PM Pacific), at the Robert F Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington D.C. The ‘Catrachos’ will play their first friendly during their World Cup camp, in what will be a significant game. Honduras is part of the very complicated Group E which also includes Switzerland, France, and Ecuador.
On a rainy night in Washington D.C., Honduras will play the first of three friendlies prior to the start of the FIFA Brazil 2014 World Cup. The team coached by Luis Suarez is ready to begin their final stretch in their World Cup preparation after being in camp in the United States since May 12th.
As it is their first friendly, Honduras may style a reserved tactical scheme without much offensive threats. The catrachos are barely obtaining team form, therefore the score is not of the biggest significance against Turkey. Nonetheless, this friendly will demonstrate what sectors of the field are the strongest and the weakest, which will allow coach Suarez to focus on which areas to improve looking forward to the next two international friendlies.
‘La H’ will also face Israel on June 1st, and England on June 7th before their games in the World Cup against France, Ecuador, and Switzerland; June 15, 20, and 25 respectively.
Honduras vs Turkey Prediction
The Honduras vs Turkey friendly will be a close contest between a potent, yet relaxed Turkey, against the ‘bicolor’ who must gain their best form in no-time. ‘La H’ will experiment playing defensively, as that is how they will most likely plan their games in the World up against their difficult Group E opponents. While Turkey is a good team, they do not have anything to lose, which will allow them to play offensively. The Honduras vs Turkey match will end in a 2-2 tie.
