Nunez: Came closest

Honduras' World Cup preparations took a blow as they failed to get on the scoresheet against European minnows Azerbaijan.

The Central American outfit still appear to have plenty of work left to do in the final days before the finals as they were held to a goalless draw by the 10-man Azerbaijani's in Austria on Tuesday.

Wayward shooting meant Honduras never really tested Azerbaijan goalkeeper Salahat Agayev, even after the 73rd-minute dismissal of Sasa Yunisoglu for a rash tackle.

Ramon Nunez was the only Honduras player who managed to force a save in the entire match, but his left-footed shot from the edge of the area was easy enough for the goalkeeper.

Honduras will face Chile, Spain and Switzerland in Group H.
