Nicaragua shocked Honduras 2-1 in the UNCAF U19 FIFA FORWARD Central American Championship at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan.
Nicaraguan striker Widman Talavera scored both goals. In the first in the 68th minute he ran through Nicaragua’s defense shooting as he was falling and in the second, he converted from the penalty spot in the 74th.
Defender Miguel Carrasco got Honduras’s consolation goal three minutes into injury time with a header off a corner kick. But it was a case of too little, too late. Nicaragua pulled the 2-1 win.
With the victory, Nicaragua top Group A with four points. Momentarily they have one more than El Salvador who beat Honduras 2-0 in the first game last Sunday.
Nicaragua have three points more than Belize with whom they drew 2-2 on Sunday as well.
Belize and El Salvador play on Tuesday night at 7:00 at the same venue.
Group action closes on Thursday at 4:15 pm when El Salvador play Nicaragua while Belize close against Honduras at 7:00pm.
