Honduras vs Mexico: Storylines
The final of the Concacaf Men's Olympic Qualifiers will be played between these two nations for the third consecutive time. Both in 2012 and 2015, though, Mexico claimed the title. That's why even though Honduras qualified to the Olympics in great fashion, knocking out a strong candidate like the US U-23's, this match still has a lot of importance for them.
Fabián Coito's squad came up strong in the semi-finals to secure a Tokyo 2021 spot. 'La H', however, managed to make their way into that game after just winning one and tying two matches in the group stage.
On the other hand, Mexico sealed their Olympic Games berth in a much more convincing manner. The team managed by Jaime Lozano has won every game in the competition so far and got into the final after beating Canada by a two-goal margin. The Tri seem to be the strongest side of the tournament, but they have one match left to prove it.
