2012 London Olympics: Honduras Shocks Spain In Soccer Upset

The Honduras men's soccer team that features D.C. United midfielder Andy Najar pulled off one of the most shocking upsets of the 2012 Olympics so far, defeating perennial power Spain 1-0 Sunday afternoon.

Najar only played the first 57 minutes, but he and his teammates were responsible for thwarting attack after attack from Spain. A goal from Jerry Bengtson in the seventh minute was all Honduras would need to win.

The loss may be the knockout blow for Spain out of the competition, as they lost to Japan in their opening game and sit at 0-2 in pool play.

As for Honduras, they keep their hopes of moving on to the knockout stage alive. They tied Morocco in their opening game and would certainly move on with a win over Japan in their final pool game.
