Hexagonal Preview: Honduras looks to extend streak
June 29th, 2001 12AM



July 1 in Tegucigalpa (National Stadium) HONDURAS-COSTA RICA TV: CCN (closed-circuit), live, 6 pm. Referee: Oscar Ruiz (Colombia). Costa Rica and Honduras are coming off back-to-back wins that put them in excellent shape to qualify for the 2002 World Cup finals. STANDINGS: Honduras, 3rd in the Hexagonal (2 wins, 2 ties, 1 loss, 11 goals for; 8 goals against, 8 points); Costa Rica, 2nd in the Hexagonal (3 wins, 1 loss, 1 ties, 9 goals for, 5 goals against, 10 points). FIRST GAME: Costa Rica and Honduras played to a 2-2 tie in their first match. The Ticos had to come from behind twice to tie Honduras. TRIVIA: Honduras extended its unbeaten streak against Costa Rica in World Cup qualifying to 11 games with the 2-2 tie. The last time the Ticos beat Honduras was in 1961. SUSPENSIONS: Both teams will be without key players, though, for the showdown at the National Stadium, the first Hexagonal match played in Tegucigalpa. Honduras will be without starting goalkeeper Noel Valladares, midfielder Julio Cesar De Leon, a key reserve who scored the only goal the United States has conceded in the Hexagonal, and forward Carlos Pavon, who scored four goals over the past two matches. Milton Nunez or Juan Manuel Carcamo will replace Pavon, and Milton Flores will be the nets to cover for Valladares. Costa Rica's Alexandre Guimaraes meanwhile must replace libero Luis Marin. Jervis Drummond may move into the middle to replace Marin.
