2012 Olympics: Honduras’s MLS connection send Spain crashing out, 1-0


The mighty Rojas are done for. Well, at least their U23 team plus Adrian Lopez and Juan Mata.
Los Catrachos, the Olympics version sent Spain crashing out of the tournament with a 1-0 win as Roger Espinoza who plies his trade for Sporting Kansas City mailed in a cross that was met by Jerry Bengtson of the New England Revs for a perfectly placed header past David De Gea.
Spain who had a hard time getting it done on the pitch then turned ornery. Juan Soto Arevalo, the referee got jostled around, when they were denied a PK after Rodrigo Moreno was brought down in the box. Simple, brute soccer won over tiki taka, finally.
