For 60 minutes Honduras and Guatemala played entertaining football filled with chances. The Gold Cup had itself its first truly entertaining and even match, but that may change in the final 30 minutes now that Guatemala is down to 10 men. Gustavo Cabrera was sent off by referee Francisco Chacon after a high kick of the ball in which he kicked a Honduran player in the follow through.Chacon showed no hesitation in sending Cabrera off.
Now a Guatemalan team that were already the underdogs are even more so. if they can manage to hang on for this 0-0 draw it will be a tremendous result for them, but doing so may be asking a little too much. Honduras have pressured them too much and a man down a goal from that pressure has to be in the cards. At the same time, it's tough to imagine the Guatemalans making much in the attacking third anymore as they likely play to defend and waste time in search of one point.
