Colombia and Honduras Play Soccer

Colombia and Honduras, two of South Florida’s most popular national teams, expect to attract a capacity crowd when they play a soccer friendly at Lockhart Stadium on Wednesday night.

Honduran coach Reinaldo Rueda will have most of the team’s top players, including striker David Suazo, who has scored 103 goals in the past nine seasons for Italian Serie A clubs Internazionale and Cagliari.

Wilson Palacios and Maynor Figueroa, who both play for Wigan of the English Premier League, also are expected to compete in Wednesday’s match. The midfielder and defender arrived during Honduras’ scrimmage against the United Soccer League’s Montreal Impact on Monday in Sunrise.

”Now I feel better because they’re here,” Rueda told Honduras’ El Tiempo newspaper.

Colombia coach Jorge Luis Pinto also has recalled top players from European clubs. Defenders Aquivaldo Mosquera and Luis Amaranto Perea, who play with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid in the Spanish league, will play in Wednesday’s exhibition in Fort Lauderdale.
