The pressure will be on Colombian soccer World Cup coach Reinaldo Rueda on Monday, when his teams Honduras takes on Spain.
Rueda, who is coaching the Central American team through this year’s epic contest, had a disappointing result a few weeks ago, when Honduras failed to gain any goals in their opening match against Chile and lost 1-0.
The Colombian coach described the game as “a great lesson against a good rival” and said that his team “performed well but what we lack is a bit of risk.”
Speaking about Monday’s game, Rueda said he was aware of Spain’s strengths and had prepared his team accordingly.
“We have gone through the feedback [from the last game], about what was good and what could be better and knowing that what’s coming is a game with a different style, with a team with excellent possession of the ball and who distract well to surprise you,” said the coach.
“The most I’ve asked from the team is that they be free, that they show off what’s they’ve got.”
The match will take place in Johannesburg at 8.30 PM local time.
