El Salvador have grown leaps and bounds under the stewardship of Hugo Perez, who took charge of team nearly two years ago. The ex-United States midfielder guided this team to the final round of World Cup qualifying for Qatar for the first time since 2010, and in 2021 the Salvadorans reached the quarter-finals of the Gold Cup for the first time since 2017. As of now, El Salvador are well positioned to make the finals of the Nations League, having collected five points from three games, to be sitting at the top of Group D, one point ahead of second-placed USA. The Blue and Whites’ last competitive action was back in June last year against USA. The match ended in a 1-1 draw thanks to Alexander Larin’s 36th-minute effort. And then, the ES suffered a 4-1 loss to Peru in a friendly in September, before ending the year with a 1-0 friendly-defeat against Nicaragua in November. El Salvador doesn’t play a free-flowing football but are very solid to break down. The are happy to sit back, defend, and hit the opposition on the counter.
Honduras, on the other hand, are going through a transition phase under Diego Vasquez. after the disappointing final round of World Cup qualifying campaign for Qatar. Many of the old guns have stepped aside and a new crop of youngsters have come into the squad. La H have won two of their three CONCACAF Nations League games and are sitting at the top of Group C, three points ahead of second-placed Canada. A win or draw in the final group-match against Canada later this month will ensure their place in the finals of the competition for the second successive time. The reverse fixture against Canada at home ended in a 2-1 victory courtesy of goals from Kevin Lopez and Kervin Arriaga. Meanwhile, Vasquez’ side relies of direct attacking play and have good pace in their ranks to catch the opposition on the break.
