This Classic Moment sees a ramshackle Honduras team defeat Brazil 2-0 in the 2001 Copa America. The Hondurans were late replacements for Argentina who withdrew after receiving death threats from terrorist groups. They arrived hours before their opening game without a full complement of players in a Colombian air force plane. They knocked Brazil out in the quarter finals and went on to finish third in the competition.
