The following picture represents probably the most brilliant success ever conquered by Honduras: the 1981 Concacaf Championship. Thanks to this triumph, they achieved also the qualification for the 1982 World Cup.

Honduras 1-1 N.Ireland

Imagine Spain equalised by a disputed penaly and Honduras lost against Yugoslavia only by a late goal.

I've found out some more pictures showing the success of Honduras in the 1981 Concacaf Championship.Quality isn't excellent, as they've been taken from the following video, anyway they're very interesting.

Glancing Twitter, I've just discovered another interesting picture (albeit in black and white) about the most important achievement for the Honduran football: their CONCACAF Championship win in 1981.

Although the quality is not perfect, I think this is the only color photo showing the Honduras national team with the 1981 CONCACAF Championship trophy. Source: the following video.
