Under 17 World Cup

Spain 4 - Honduras 2

Spain opened their campaign in Korea with a 4-2 win over Honduras. Barcelona's Bojan controlled a long ball out of midfield to lob the keeper and score in only the second minute, but Christian Martínez ran on to equalise with an angled shot past De Gea twenty minutes later. Villarreal's Jordi came on after the break though to put Juan Santiesteban's side ahead again after Licona fumbled a high ball, and Borja cut in past a defender to make it three soon afterwards. But Rojas got another one back for the Central Americans, and it was not until Jordi latched on to Dani Aguino's cross to score into an empty net that Spain were safe. (19.08.07)
