As expected Honduras have turned out to be the struggling team in Group E, not helped by Wilson Palacios sending off against France the Hondurans were holding their own until that penalty decision. After that it was always going to be tough. Then in the second game against Equador the hondurans took the lead but that only seemed to spark Equador into life and unfortunately Honduras just couldnt deal with the speed and counter attacking of Equador.
Switzerland will come into this game looking to get a win to advance to the last sixteen. The Swiss though have been far from impressive in both games thus far, they were very lucky to beat Equador in the opening game but really struggled against France and were 5-0 down before adding a couple of late consolations. Bayern Munichs Shaqiri has been pretty anonymous for such a gifted player but its possible he will get more space tomorrow in the midfield alngside Napoli's Inler.
Hard to find any value here in this game but I am going to take the Honduran's +0.5 in the first half handicap, I think Honduras will make a game of this for at least the first 60 minutes. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
