Kick-off is set for 9pm BST. Live coverage is on BBC Three and BBC Three HD. Radio commentary of the game will be on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Honduras come into this fixture without managing to nick a point from both their matches at this year's World Cup. After falling 3-0 to France, they suffered a 2-1 defeat against Ecuador last Friday.

Carlo Costly scored Honduras' first goal at the World Cup since 1982 putting them into the lead in the 31st minute. However, their joy was short lived as the Ecuadorians drew level courtesy of Enner Valencia's strike. The 25-year-old Pachuca striker then doubled his tally for the evening netting the winner in the 65th minute.

Luis Suarez's side are yet to open their tally but still have a chance of making it through to the round of 16 on goal difference if they win their match and the result between France and Ecuador go their way.

Meanwhile, Switzerland failed to secure their place in the knockout stages of the tournament after being humbled 5-2 by France at the Arena Fonte Nova, Salvador. Les Blues raced into a 5-0 lead with goals from Olivier Giroud, Blaise Matuidi, Mathieu Valbuena, Karim Benzema and Moussa Sissoko.

Ottmar Hitzfeld's men reduced the deficit to three in the last nine minutes of the game courtesy of strikes from the midfield pair of Blerim Dzemaili and Granit Xhaka. The European side had posted a 2-1 victory in their first match against Ecuador and have three points.

However, the Swiss stand a chance of progressing at the expense of both the South American outfits if they secure all three points. But a draw would see them depend on France to come away with all three points from their final Group E game against Ecuador.

What Managers Say

Luis Suarez (Honduras): "We know it'll be tough to reach the next round, but it'd be even worse to have been knocked out already. It's worth Honduras continuing to fight. What we have not lost is the will to fight. We need to find a way to improve in order to win and while there's hope, we won't give up without a fight. The good things we did give us confidence. But the bad things are what journalists remember. We can only do what we can. Hopefully the players have the awareness of what they have to do."

Ottmar Hitzfeld (Switzerland): "Everything is in our hands. We still have a good chance of qualifying. It was a bleak day for us [against France]. We were not able to show our true potential. With a lack of attention and the heat, we were not able to run as much and achieve the speed we need and mistakes occurred. We have seen many mistakes in many games in this Cup. We still have high hopes of qualifying for the round of 16 and it will depend on us."

Prediction: Honduras 0-2 Switzerland
