Honduras will take on Qatar in the Group D match of the CONCACAF Gold Cup on 21st July at the BBVA Compass Stadium.  In their second encounter of the competition, Qatar thrashed Grenada 4-0, while Honduras defeated Panama 3-2.

Team Preview

Honduras

Honduras has performed admirably in the Gold Cup thus far, currently leading the group.

The Hondurans have played brilliantly winning both of their games and scoring seven goals in the process. They will play this game with a great deal of self-assurance and confidence.

Qatar

Qatar have four points after two games and is currently ranked second in Group D. They haven’t officially qualified for the quarter-finals, and they’ll need a point against Honduras to advance to the next round.

Qatar has been a great nuisance for opposition defences in their opening two matches, and they’ll want to continue in that trend this time around.

Head-to-Head

Honduras and Qatar will face each other for the first time.
