Following around 20 years of no real achievements, the team were a late entrant into the 2001 Copa America following Argentina's withdrawal. With barely a squad full of players and turning up a day before the start, they surprised the continent with progression from their group in 2nd place. The quarter final saw them take on tournament favourites Brazil. However, Honduras produced one of their greatest ever results to beat Brazil 2-0 and progress to the semi finals. Nevertheless, they lost 2-0 to hosts Columbia but managed to beat Uruguay on penalties in the 3rd/4th play off encounter.
This seemed to help Honduras football massively as the team became one of the better sides in Northern America behind giants USA and Mexico. An appearance at the 2009 Gold Cup semi finals was promising during a time that Honduras were involved in the final 2010 World Cup qualifying group. A last day victory over El Salvador saw the team finish in 3rd on goal difference ahead of Costa Rica guaranteeing them participation in the 2010 World Cup.
The nation emerged as a competitive North American nation in 1981 as they hosted the CONCACAF Championship. Honduras won the competition ahead of Mexico, Cuba, Haiti, El Salvador and Canada to win their first major tournament. Just a year later, they managed to qualify for their first ever World Cup. The team performed admirably despite finishing bottom of their group as they gained draws against Northern Ireland and giants Spain.
World Cup Kits
Honduras currently wear an all white with blue trim shirt and a traditional design of collar. Their past shirts have not strayed away from this simple combination. Supplied by Spanish brand Joma, the 2014 World Cup Honduras home shirt features their iconic white colour along with sky blue trim on the sides, shoulders and collar. The new Honduras home shirt has a simple rounded v-neck collar with the nation’s crest stamped on the left breast with the Joma logo on the right.
The 2014 World Cup away kit for Honduras is sky blue featuring white trim on the branding, sides, shoulders and collar. This is Joma’s second attempt at World Cup shirts as the brand supplied Honduras’ kits for the 2010 World Cup.
Honduras have twice appeared at FIFA World Cup competition's prior to 2014 and both times in the country's traditional white with blue trim colour scheme.
At the debut World Cup appearance in 1982 Honduras wore a white shirt along with adidas' signature stripes running down the sleeves. In 2010 the notable addition to an otherwise basic design was a gradient design blue bar across the chest of the shirt.
One of Honduras' most memorable kits would have to be the one used in 1982 where it boasted a simplistic design. It was unlike the 2010 shirt as it did not feature any gradient design on the front.
In terms of away kits Honduras have kept it pretty simple using mostly blue colours with white trim. With white being their home colour and blue their second the away kits have seen it reverse.
For the past two decades Honduras have had their kits supplied by Spanish brand Joma. Honduras' official language is Spanish and this may be a link to their kit supplier.
White has always been the chosen colour for both shorts and socks, although a blue alternative is often used depending on the opponent. Honduras are one of several teams around the globe to have white kits with blur trim.
