Celtic's Izaguirre: South Africa experience has Honduras ready for Brazil

Celtic defender Emilio Izaguirre is confident that Honduras will have benefitted from their experiences at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The Central American nation competed in their second FIFA finals a little over three years ago and are now preparing for the 2014 version in Brazil which leads Izaguirre to believe that they will be a much-improved outfit.

"The most exciting thing about the World Cup is just qualifying for it as it made people all over Honduras so happy," the left-back told the Celtic View.

"It's still a new experience for us. When we went to South Africa we had no experience of playing in a big tournament and now we have that so hopefully we can have a good World Cup.

"We have been striving for this for four years since the last World Cup in South Africa, and we are all very happy in Honduras, whether it's the fans, our families or everyone in the country.

"It's very exciting and I have to thank God for this moment as going back to the World Cup is fantastic."
