Chile got off to a dream start in their opening match at the FIFA World Youth Championship Netherlands 2005 after riding roughshod over a weak Honduran side. Their emphatic victory leaves La Roja top of Group C on goal difference ahead of Spain, who beat Morocco 3-1 hours earlier at the same Vejverberg Stadium in Doetinchem.  
   
Chile arrived at the tournament intent on making a name for themselves and their urgency was evident right from the start. As early as the fourth minute, their attacking verve almost had them in front when Matias Fernandez forced the Honduran keeper Guerra to make a spectacular diving save from one of his trademark free kicks. 
  
Playing a heady mix of pulsating high-octane football, Jose Sulantay's hard working side took the game by the scruff of the neck and refused to let go. For a Honduran side on the back foot for most the match, there was little else to do but try and ride out the storm. 
  
Chile's irrepressible quartet of captain Matias Fernandez, Ricardo Parada, Jose Pedro Fuenzalida and Nicolas Canales were unrelenting and had a hand in all the team's best moves. Time after time, they linked up to threaten Angel Guerra's goal, to the delight of the large Chilean contingent present. 
  
 "This is a great win for us as it gives the side an extra fillip. What it won't do however is earn us any more than three points. The satisfaction will stay with me until the morning, but after that we'll be focusing exclusively on our next game with Spain," said Sulantay. "One of the keys to this victory was scoring quickly. On top of that, the short grass suited our style of play. We stop other sides from playing and pressurize our opponents constantly," he added.

It was Canales who fashioned Chile's first goal after a wonderful solo run down the right touchline. Arriving in the Honduran area, he outwitted the onrushing defenders and served it on plate for Ricardo Parada, who had the simplest of tasks to slot it past the hapless Guerra (0-1, 11'). 
  
The Chileans stepped up the pressure after going ahead, and Guerra had to be at his sharpest to deny Felipe Munoz and then Parada in successive one-on-ones. There was nothing he could do about Chile's second, though, which came when Fuenzalida picked up a rebound in the Honduran box and lashed home a low drive on the half-hour mark (0-2, 30'). 
  
Chile took their foot off the accelerator before half-time, giving the Catrachos the chance to get forward and apply some belated pressure. With the Hondurans continuing to press forward at the start of the second half, Fernandez used his searing pace to lethal effect. The Central Americans had no answer to his surging runs from midfield, and it was Fernandez's diagonal pass that set up Fuenzalida for his second goal, the Universidad Catolica midfielder firing a cross-shot past Guerra after subtly outmanoeuvring Claros (0-3, 53). 
  
"It was a historic win, and with my two goals and my dad watching from the stands I couldn't have wished for a better debut. I just hope every game's like this," said a euphoric Fuenzalida after the final whistle. Minutes after scoring his second, he returned the compliment by setting up his captain for Chile's fourth (0-4, 67'). 
  
With the Hondurans on the canvas, coach Sulantay's side calmly went about improving their goal difference. Gonzalo Jara had the crowd on their feet when he found the top corner with a piledriver from the edge of the D (0-5, 69'). 
  
Two minutes later, Parada scored his second when he threaded a powerful shot between Guerra and the near post from a tight angle (0-6, 71'). 
  
Morales, who had earlier come on for Canales, then put the icing on Chile's cake with a cool finish from the edge of the box (0-7, 77'). 
  
Ramon Nunez tried to drive his dispirited team-mates forward in search of a consolation goal, and the Hondurans went close with a late free-kick. 
  
"I don't want to take anything away from Chile, but absolutely nothing went right for us. We were totally disorganised and lacked the strength either to get forward or defend properly," said an utterly dejected Ruben Guifarro at the end of a trying night. There is no doubt the Honduran coach will have his hands full trying to lift his team's spirits for their next two games.
