This day in history of Ronaldo
A downpour pelted the pitch at the Mexican capital's Azteca Stadium throughout the first half, but did little to slow Brazil, which attacked the right side of the Honduran zone again and again. Several near-misses equally excited and pained a small crowd of 4,000, most of which retreated to the concourse level.
Maicon opened the scoring in the 15th minute. After Coello batted away his long-range shot from the center, the speedy defender controlled the rebound and unleashed a hard shot from the right side that easily found the net's left corner.
Coello kept Brazil from scoring again two minutes later when he stuffed a point-blank penalty shot from the center by midfielder Kaka. The goalie came up big again in the 23rd minute when he jumped to stop a point-blank offering from midfielder Diego, who had broken free to the right of the goal.
But Coello couldn't help Honduras' anemic offense, which couldn't manage a single shot on goal the entire first half.
The rain turned torrential at the start of the second half, which didn't help the Hondurans on either end of the field. Walter Hernandez just missed scoring on a free kick from the top of the box in the 74th minute, but Brazilian goalie Gomes leaped to knock away his blast.
Diego scored to make it 2-0 in the 85th minute, controlling a corner kick by Thiago Motta with his chest before punching the ball home.
Honduras' Julio Cesar ``Rambo'' Leon scored on a penalty shot on the final play of injury time.
