Hume helpless in defeat to Honduras

Hume helpless in defeat to Honduras

Iain Hume came from the bench to earn his 24th cap for Canada at the Saputo Stadium in Montreal during the early hours of this morning.

The Scottish-born forward replaced Tomasz Radzisnki on the left-wing in the 22nd minute as Canada slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Honduras in the World Cup Qualifiers, leaving the Canucks in third place of the CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) Group Two.

A near-capacity crowd of 12,338 saw the home side take the lead thanks to a header from Adrian Serioux. The former Millwall defender latched onto a Bernier corner in the fourth minute.

The Hondurans will be delighted with their second half display, capitalising on a lacklustre Canadian outfit. Ramón Núñez bagged both goals in the 47th and 56th minute, his first effort cleverly set-up by Wigan midfielder Wilson Palacios.

The Canadians face Mexico on Wednesday in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapa, which will be the twenty-seventh meeting between the two nations.

Hopefully Hume will earn his 25th cap for Canada, and more importantly come through the match unscathed and ready for Saturday`s Coca Cola Championship match with Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.
