How to watch Honduras vs Mexico in the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship: start time and live stream

Both teams are through to the next round, but this game will decide which one is the winner of Group A.

Honduras and Mexico are through to the Classification Stage of the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship, but this match will determine which team moves on as the winner of Group A and which must settle for the runner-up spot.

This is also, perhaps, the first major test of Mexico's tournament-favorite credentials. El Tri has swaggered through two games, scoring eight goals and conceding none. A 3-0 win over Antigua and Barbuda was followed by an even more imposing 5-0 win over Canada. Along the way, Ronaldo Cisneros has staked an early claim to the tournament's Golden Boot with four goals in those two games.

Honduras enjoyed a more modest win over Canada - 1-0 - and made a 4-1 win over Antigua and Barbuda look a little more difficult than expected. But the Hondurans are expected to be the first team able to challenge the perception that Mexico is on its way to another regional U-20 title.

Honduran forward Douglas Martinez will join New York Red Bulls II after this tournament. He scored against Antigua and Barbuda (and assisted on his team's third goal).
