Honduras 0 Chile 1. All over, with Chile putting on a good show. They were better than the scoreline suggests and could be a side to keep an eye on in South Africa. As for Honduras, they looked a bit out of their depth and could be in for a tough time. Thanks for joining me and I hope you enjoyed the game.
Final change is made as Valdivia is replaced by former Liverpool winger Mark Gonzalez.
Contreras on in place of Vidal.
Martinez on in place of Nunez as Honduras make their final switch.
Hendry Thomas of Wigan is on, with the veteran Guevara making way.
Pavon makes way for Welcome. Good name for a substitute.
West Brom's Jara on in place of Millar.
Dannielle from Uxbridge wants to see Honduras offer more, saying: "Come on Honduras!!! Palacios has been through so much and is doing this for his brother. Although he may need to calm down on the tackles. Always gets a yellow card even when playing for the mighty Spurs!!!!"
Elliot Owens is another backing Honduras to pull level, and for the game to end with 11 versus 10: "Honduras will come back into this when Carmona gets sent off. We shall see! - Honduras 1v 1 Chile."
Ben Langley still feels we will end all square: "I'm backing Honduras to get an equaliser. They need the Palacios brothers on together though."
John Hutchison in Sydney is enjoying Chile's attacking approach: "What a breath of fresh air Chile are to this World Cup, 4-3-3 and showing attacking even Arsenal-esque football. I predict Chile to win 3-2 and already looking forward to their 3-3 game against Spain."
Paul Madden is hoping Chile mix it up in the second half: "I wish chile would bring Suazo on. I have him at 100/1 with skybet for the golden boot, and this looks a great oppurtunity to bag a few!"
Honduras 0 Chile 1. Entertaining first half, with Chile well on top. They are good value for their lead and will fancy their chances of grabbing a few more after the break.
GOAL CHILE - BEAUSEJOUR. Chile take a deserved lead. Great run in behind from Isla and he squares acros the six yard box. Beausejour is on hand to force the ball home, with the aid of a deflection.
Palacios the latest to go into the book. Not sure what for, and neither is the Tottenham man.
Fernandez sees yellow. Looks like he may have spoken out of turn.
Carmona becomes the first player in the book for a clumsy challenge on Alvarez. He now needs to be careful.
Rob Styles says: "Honduras are being greatly under rated, I wont be shocked if they pull off a fine result against Chile today, Wilson Palacios to shine through!!"
Victor J. Michael is also keen to get involved, and is throwing his support behind the unfancied Hondurans: "I think from what we've seen, as in the New Zealand game and others, the 'weaker team' can always pull a surprise. I say Honduras are going to put up a fight and either draw or win!"
Quick mention for Ken Pascall, who has offered another prediction prior to kick-off: "I can see this being yet another draw, 1-1. It would not suprise me as even though Chile are favourites Honduras will give a good account of themselves."
Dylan Herholdt is also backing Chile to come out on top, saying: "I'm a South African living in Portugal and recently drew Chile in our company sweep, come on Chile!!!! I do think they have too much quality for Honduras but stranger things have happened."
Mr MB is first to air their opinion this afternoon. He says: "Being an expert in football score prediction (only joking by the way) i see this game going to Chile but i reckon that Honduras will take an early lead through Pavon, but Chile are too strong and will end up winning the game by either 2-1 or 3-1. Also, why is Gonzalez on the bench??? "
