The Honduras national football team, nicknamed Los Catrachos, is the national team of Hondurasmarker and is controlled by the Federación Nacional Autónoma de Fútbol de Honduras (founded in 1951). They are a rising team in CONCACAF, an ascent that started with their third place finish in the 2001 Copa América behind the first place Colombia and the Second Place Mexico , where they were a late invitee, due to a withdrawal by Argentinamarker one day prior to kickoff. In October 2009, they confirmed qualification to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which will be their first appearance in the competition since 1982.

History

Honduras played its first game against Guatemala on September 14th 1921, where they unfortunately lost by a large margin.

The Football War started after a qualifying game for the 1970 World Cup against El Salvador. After massive rioting between the fans, on 14 July, 1969, the Salvadoran army launched an attack against Honduras. A cease fire was put in effect six days later.

Honduras won the 1981 CONCACAF Championship. Honduras qualified for the World Cup in 1982 and 2009. They finished second in both the 1985 CONCACAF Championship and the 1991 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Honduras won the UNCAF Nations Cup twice in 1993 and 1995.

1981 CONCACAF Championship

In 1981, Honduras hosted the CONCACAF championship. All the games were played at Estadio Tiburcio Carias Andinomarker. With a 4-0 win over Haiti, 2-0 win over Cuba, 2-1 victory over Canada, and 0-0 draws against El Salvador and Mexico, Honduras became CONCACAF champions.

Copa América 2001

Since 1993, CONMEBOL has invited teams from other confederations to participate in their confederation championship, Copa América. Honduras took part as one of the last minute teams added for Copa América 2001. (Argentina dropped out one day before kickoff.) The team arrived only a few hours before the tournament's first game and with barely enough players. Despite the odds, Honduras progressed onto the quarter-final stage where they faced and defeated Brazil 2-0. In the semi-finals however, it was Colombia that knocked off Honduras, 0-2.

2010 FIFA World Cup

On October 14 2009, Honduras qualified for the 2010 World Cup finals, after a 1-0 win against El Salvador gave them the third automatic qualifying spot from the Fourth Round of CONCACAF Qualifying.
