Canada vs. Honduras
2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifier, CONCACAF Third Round
BMO Field, Toronto
7:45pm ET (5:45pm MT)
It's been a while, but hey...we're (as in Waking the Red Live) back with another installment of our award-eligible live commentary chats!
After a respectable tie against the US, and getting 3 valuable points against Cuba, Canada can take a massive step towards hex qualification as 3 points here will mean 6 overall. That would be halfway towards Stephen Hart's goal of 12 points, and a 6 point lead over Honduras, who are now presumably our main rivals for 2nd after they lost at home to Panama on Friday.
Of course, beating Honduras when it counts is never really something that comes easily to Canada, who knows what fresh outrage could infuriate us all tonight. Canada will be looking to keep it tight against Carlos Costly and co, while hoping Olivier Occean can repeat his Cuba heroics, or perhaps that Dwayne de Rosario can convince himself he's playing in MLS and be the reliable finisher he usually is and finally smash the all time scoring record. We all know De Ro loves himself some glory, and if he can get the record tonight in front of his hometown crowd, in a game that really really means something, well I wouldn't begrudge him it for a second.
So join us for general pre game nervousness in the comments section, and then after the jump or at this page starting at 7pm EST, for lineups, pre-game chat and the witty-yet-somewhat-sarcastic commentary you've come to expect from WTR Live!
