Mexico win in Sven’s first game in charge; Bocanegra is the hero for the USA

Mexico 2 – Honduras 1 (CONCACAF World Cup qualifier, August 20, 2008) Sven Goran Eriksson’s team had to come behind in the Swedes opening game as boss of Mexico. Julio Cesar Leon put Honduras in front with a cracking free-kick that came off the bar. Pavel Pardo scored both goals, the first was a screamer in the 73rd minute and three minutes later his free-kick evaded everyone to secure the win.

Guatemala 0 – USA 1 (CONCACAF World Cup qualifier, August 20, 2008) Carlos Bocanegra headed in the only goal of the game.
