Group H - Honduras 0-1 Chile: Beausejour ends Chile's long wait

Chile ended a wait of almost half a century for a victory on the world stage by defeating Honduras 1-0 in their opening Group H game in Nelspruit.

If there was a touch of fortune about Jean Beausejour's 34th-minute winner – Roger Espinoza's attempted clearance striking him as the pair slid in to meet a cross – it was the least Chile deserved for an impressive attacking display that had Honduras on the ropes for much of the 90 minutes.

The story is too old to be commented.

Chile and swiss might be the outsiders going far! Good game of Chile. Honduras just played as bad as I expected!

Chile deserved to win, honduras were poor. Although i did expect Chile to score more
