Honduras vs. Mexico: 6 Things We Learned from World Cup Qualifier

Mexico has not won in Honduras since 1993.

Mexico was close to breaking a 20-year hex without winning in Honduras. The last time El Tri took three points home was in the 1994 World Cup qualifier. Today, Honduras pulled off a miraculous draw.

El Tri was dominating the match until the 75th minute. Javier Hernandez was instrumental, as he scored twice. The back line was superb, despite the complicated climatic conditions: 100ºF.

However, Carlo Costly sent a header to the back of the net to put his team on the board, three minutes later an arguable penalty kick gave the local team the equalizer.

Mexico played to its best in a very hostile ground, proving that there is talent and guts.

Join me to find out six things we learned from this historic match.
