VIDEO: Host Nation Fall To Honduras In World Cup Opener

UAE lost their first FIFA U17 World Cup match on home soil against Honduras yesterday evening.

Fredy Medina put Honduras ahead early on but UAE came back into the match when Khaled Khalfan netted the equaliser just after the half hour mark.

It was ten minutes from the end when Honduras got their winner. Brayan Velasquez condemned UAE to defeat in Group A when he unleashed a fierce drive from the edge of the area into the goalkeeper’s bottom right hand corner.

Watch video highlights below.
