Honduras player ratings vs France - Hull defender shines in defeat

Honduras' aggressive approach wasn't enough to prevent France strolling to a comfortable 3-0 win. Here are the Honduran players ratings from the game...

Noel Valladares 7 - The veteran goalkeeper did concede three, but he made some excellent stops to limit the damage. Unfortunate with the own-goal.

Brayan Beckeles 6 - Made some important tackles but was ultimately outclassed by the French attack.

Victor Bernardez 7 - The powerful centre-back battled well and was almost stretchered off twice in the first half, but he fought through for his side. They were defensively better when he was in there.

Maynor Figueroa 8 - Best player on the pitch for Honduras and was excellent at the back. The Hull City defender needs better defenders around him for La Bicolor to keep clean sheets.

Emilio Izaguirre 5 - The Celtic left-back was poor, and didn't offer his usual threat going forward. Left his foot in late on a couple of occasions.

Andy Najar 5 - Didn't see enough of the ball and was poor with his delivery into the box when he had the opportunity.

Luis Garrido 5 - Was lost in the middle of the park and couldn't get near the likes of Cabaye and Pogba. Another who resulted to violent tackles late on.

Wilson Palacios 3 - The Stoke midfielder let his nation down after picking up a second yellow on the stroke of halftime for a needless push. Was lucky not to have seen red for earlier stamp on Pogba and his absence cost Honduras the game.

Roger Espinoza 6 - Worked hard and tried to start some attacking moves but was not supported anywhere near enough.

Carlo Costly 5 - Failed to make any mark on the game and was kept quiet by Mamadou Sakho.

Jerry Bengtson 5 - Also struggled to see much of the ball and was pulled off at halftime.


Oscar Boniek Garcia 6 - Injected some energy but could have done better with a good opportunity in the second-half.

Osman Chavez 5 - Poor at the heart of defence and looked out of his depth trying to handle Karim Benzema after coming on at halftime.

Jorge Claros 5 - Brought on to shore up the midfield but was another spectator who failed to stop France from dominating in the middle of the park.
