France: Having managed to help the national side win the World Cup as a player (1998), Didier Deschamps will be hoping he can do the same as the manager for the side. With a relatively young side, France can make a difference in the World Cup this time, looking to improve on a terrible run in South Africa.
Honduras: Making their third appearance in the World Cup (second time in a row), Honduras will try to take their oppurtunity to go beyond the group stage. If they manage to do so, it would be the first time they qualify for the Round of 16. Honduras will count on Wilson Palacios, Carlo Costly and Jerry Bengtson to make history.
The two sides are meeting for the first time.
