They are strong on athleticism and speed but short on the Latin skills they will need against Chile and Spain. They also struggle to remain concentrated tactically for a full 90 minutes.

The player to watch is Maynor Figueroa for his left foot, Danilo Turcios for ghosting into scoring positions, Wilson Palacios for all-round midfield work rate, Carlos Pavon for chasing everything down in the box.
