Honduras 2-2 Morocco (Olympics) – Highlights

A second-half double from Jerry Bengston wasn’t enough to hand Honduras only their second ever win in the Olympic Games as 10-man Morocco held on for a 2-2 draw at Hampden Park.

The Africans enjoyed the better of the opening period and went ahead seven minutes before half-time thanks to a sweetly struck volley from Abdel Barrada.

Honduras responded excellently after the break though and were level on 55 minutes when Bengston tapped home Maynor Figueroa’s shot from close range.

Bengston then scored again from the penalty spot, but the lead only lasted two minutes before Zakaria Labyad equalised with a scooped effort that eluded Jose Mendoza.

Zakarya Bergdich was then shown a red card for kicking out at Mario Martinez with 19 minutes remaining but Honduras couldn’t take advantage of their man advantage as the points were shared.
