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.
Ecuador: Ecuador is seen as a surprise name in the World Cup stage but it looks like the South-American team has drawn inspiration from the tragic death of their player Christian Benítez. It is seen as a daunting task for Reinaldo Rueda’s side to qualify for the next round in their only fourth World Cup appearance. But one would expect Captain Antonio Valencia to inspire his side to proceed to a better finish this time around.
