Championship Final â€“ HONDURAS vs. MEXICO
On Tue., Oct. 13 at 10:00p ET / 7:00p PT
WHAT:Â Â Â
El Tri will defend its Olympic Gold Medal. Mexico defeated Canada during the semifinals of this tournament this past weekend and earned a berth in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. But, before Mexico makes the trip to Brazil next summer to begin its bid as back-to-back Olympic Champion, the squad is first looking to repeat as CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Champion. Mexico will face Honduras and a victory would add a seventh Pre-Olympic Qualifying Tournament title to the young Mexicanâ€™s resume. Honduras can claim its third overall qualifying tournament title with a win over Mexico. Los Catrachos defeated the U.S. during their semifinal match to earn its trip to Rio. The 2016 Games will be the Hondurans third consecutive Olympic tournament and fourth overall.
