TFC's Guevara Seeks History Against Familiar Faces

Honduras' run to the final round of Concacaf 2010 World Cup qualifying has put Toronto FC midfielder Amado Guevara closer to his lifelong ambition of playing on soccer's greatest stage. "It's a dream for the whole country of Honduras. For the fans it's been such a long time that Honduras hasn't been in the World Cup," Guevara said. "For everyone who is involved it's one of those objectives that you have, and it would be a dream come true to get to the World Cup." Guevara is Honduras's most-capped player and fourth-highest scorer. Bringing his country its first World Cup appearance since 1982 would be the highlight of his career.

Playing in World Cup qualifying matches has given Guevara chances to square off against several of his Toronto FC teammates. Guevara faced Jim Brennan, Kevin Harmse and (then-FC Dallas member) Adrian Serioux when Honduras played Canada in the third qualifying round last fall. The two Honduras-Jamaica matches in the same round also gave Guevara the opportunity to play against former TFC center back Tyrone Marshall. So far, Guevara holds the edge in Red vs. Red matchups. Honduras went a combined 3-1 against Canada and Jamaica en route to a first-place finish in its third round qualifying group.

Guevara hopes that this trend will continue when his national team faces Marvell Wynne and the United States on June 6 in Chicago. Guevara and Wynne will leave TFC following the club's Saturday game against Houston in order to join their respective national team camps for what is a two-game round of qualifying matchdays. The United States travels to Costa Rica on June 3 before hosting Honduras on June 6, and Honduras then heads home for a June 10 date with El Salvador.
