World Cup Preview: France – Honduras

Free Betting Tip: France/Honduras over 2.75 at 1.96

France is a good team with a great defense. However, Honduras has the strongest set of legs in the tournament and that isn’t a joke. They can pinpoint the ball from 50 yards out and I see them losing this game 2-1. However, they will upset a team in the group stage, but it won’t be France today. France is loaded with talent and will go very far in this tournament. Their offense is great and they have a good matchup today. I easily see this game breaking 3 goals and the World Cup stage is brighter than anything. France 2 Honduras 1

PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil – As Beira-Rio faces its World Cup debut, fans wonder – can France win without talisman Franck Ribery? This question will begin to find an answer on Sunday, as the Europeans face Honduras in Porto Alegre.

Les Bleus supporters were left with heartbreak when coach Didier Deschamps announced the Bayern Munich star would not feature in Brazil. As did his teammates, with defender Laurent Koscielny highlighting the winger’s participation on building up dressing room atmosphere.

“He’s very important in the dressing room, he communicates well with everyone. His passion is crucial. But other players have come in and the atmosphere has remained very good, even though we still have to deal with those absences.”

France bounced back with confidence and went to Brazil with an 8-0 thrashing over Jamaica. Back then, Deschamps gave a hint on what his backup plan would be like, with marksman Karim Benzema being moved to the left to make room for Olivier Giroud. It wouldn’t be a surprise, however, if the Arsenal man exits the starting XI so Benzema can return to the center, with Antoine Grizmann opposing Mathieu Valbuena on the left wing.

Another doubt for the French boss lies in defense, as Debuchy and Sagna fight for the right flank spot, though the latter should be line up after the Newcastle man missed some training ahead of this encounter.

Honduras, meanwhile, will try to collect any result better than a heavy loss, although Luis Suarez’s men might be inspired after holding England for a goalless draw in Miami. But the Colombian’s goals are set even higher.

“They [players] should aim for the qualification for the next round, that’s how you make history”, he said. “The players are well aware they are not here for a ride.”

Los Catrachos boss will retain the mystery until minutes to kickoff, without disclosing whether he’s going for a 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1 approach. Forward Carlos Costly resumed training after a scare on Thursday and it’s more likely he will opt for the first setup, with New England’s Jerry Bengtson by his side.

Defender Bryan Beckeles should also retain a starting position, even if his dismissal against the English last week almost jeopardized the team’s chances.
