Mexico to go for win vs. Honduras with Hexagonal points record in sight

Sebastian Salazar and Herculez Gomez react to Liga MX's response in wake of the recent earthquake in Mexico.

Mexico will seek to set a new points record for the Hexagonal phase of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying when it takes on Honduras in San Pedro Sula on Tuesday, with coach Juan Carlos Osorio guaranteeing already-qualified El Tri won't be taking the match lightly.

Mexico is currently on 21 points and would overtake Costa Rica's record of 23 achieved in qualifying for the 2002 World Cup with a victory, while Honduras sits in fifth place and needs a positive result to have any chance of making Russia 2018.
