As expected, Honduras claimed the 12th and final berth in the 2007 Gold Cup with a 9-1 victory over Nicaragua Thursday in the fifth-place game at the UNCAF Digicel Cup.
Veteran Wilmer Velasquez
had four goals, and former MLS and A-League striker Saul Martinez
added three for the Catrachos, who join
Digicel Cup semifinalists El Salvador, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Panama as the five Central American representatives.
They join the USA, Canada and Mexico from North America and Haiti,
Trinidad & Tobago, Guadeloupe and Cuba from the Caribbean in the Gold Cup, which will be played June 6-24 at six U.S. venues.
