Wigan Athletic pair Hendry Thomas and Maynor Figueroa will be part of the Honduras team that take on the United States in a must win game for the catrachos in this World Cup 2010 qualifier.
Honduras are sitting in 3rd spot in their qualifying group with just two games remaining, USA top and Mexico 2nd with Costa Rica in 4th and there are just 4 points separating all four teams meaning that there is everything to play for.
Honduras have won all their home ties in this qualifying campaign and a win tonight in San Pedro Sula would put them in a really strong position going into their final game next week away at fierce rivals El Salvador. A win for the US and the Americans will qualify automatically.
The format of the CONCACAF group gives the top 3 automatic qualification and the 4th placed team a play-off against the 5th placed South America side, currently that is Argentina, but due to the superb form of Honduras they need fear no one and the prospect of a trip to South Africa is a distinct possibility as they look to qualify for the tournament finals for the first time since 1982.
