LONDON OLYMPIC GAMES FOOTBALL | SPAIN ELIMINATED LOSE 0 - 1 TO HONDURAS

SPAIN was eliminated from the 2012 OLYMPIC GAMES after losing 0 - 1 to HONDURAS in the second match of Group D. Once again the importance of winning the first game of any Football tournament with the Group system comes true as the pressure & the nerves of a "must win situation" in the following match can be a mountain to climb.

The Spanish team were unlucky, very unlucky, they hit the wood-work 3 times ( Adrian 55th min, Muniain 68th min & Rodrigo 82nd min), plus the Venezuelan referee did not call two clear penalties that will be talked about & gave rise in the end to controversy.

However, congratulations to Honduras which played their game & with their strengths. Another defensive mistake by Spain lead to the first goal in the 6th min when BENGTSON scored with a header. Here is the true reason for the Spanish elimination from the London Olympic Games, as with Japan in the first game, the defence lapsed & was undisciplined in the crucial moment & allowed the header which later was to eliminate them.



From here the Spanish youngsters played well & bravely pouring their hearts into everything, but as time went on & the final whistle got nearer, everything was rushed & the nerves along with the frustration made things more difficult.

In the end, everything went wrong, posts & no called penalties included. That´s Football!

Spain now will meet Morocco in the final Group game & then return home. At least the boys tried & they will have the Olympic experience & spirit to tell the children.
