Los Catrachos upset strong sides Portugal and Argentina in the group stage and got past Korea Republic in the quarterfinals....

Honduras' new generation showing CONCACAF giants the way at Rio 2016

Hondura will face host nation Brazil in the semifinals of the men's football Olympic tournament in Rio.

Reigning Olympic champion Mexico is still licking its wounds after a group stage exit at Rio 2016 and the United States never even got to pack its bags for the men's football tournament. Instead, it is Honduras that keeps the CONCACAF flag flying high, while the confederation's traditional giants wonder where it all went wrong.

Honduras national team becoming a beacon of hope in San Pedro Sula

Honduras fans
Honduras fans cheer on their team at the CONCACAF Gold Cup last summer.

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras -- Rivera Hernandez, San Pedro Sula bears no resemblance to the French or Italian Riviera. A quick Google search clears that up. Violent photos, ugly news stories and tales of hardship pop up, not picturesque and quaint coastline.
