Honduras rallies to defeat Canada in men's soccer

The Canadian men's soccer team was dealt a stinging blow to its 2010 World Cup hopes as a pair of second-half goals from Ramon Nunez helped Honduras rally for a 2-1 win in Saturday's qualifying match at Saputo Stadium in Montreal.

Adrian Serioux helped Canada to a very early lead, but a pair of goals in the second half from Ramon Nunez secured the advantage for Honduras, which earned three points and moved into second place in a group led by first-place Mexico (six points) and Jamaica (one point).

Canada, which earned a disappointing 1-1 tie with Jamaica in the opening match of the qualifying round on Aug. 20, has now taken just one point from two home matches to start the semifinal qualifying round for CONCACAF, the soccer region that covers North and Central America and the Caribbean.
