England 0-0 Honduras – International Friendly – 7th June 2014
Despite failing to find the back of the net in Miami on Saturday, England boss Roy Hodgson will still be happy that his players didn’t pick up any more injuries against a rather ‘physical’ Honduras side.
The Hondurans, backed by a large section of supporters, didn’t pull any punches with Brayan Beckeles seeing red after a horror challenge on Leighton Baines. The central Americans were lucky to see only one of their players sent off while England toiled up front. Daniel Sturridge missed the best of the Three Lions’ chances but overall it was a worthwhile workout in difficult humid conditions, conditions which forced the game to be temporarily suspended due to a nearby storm.
