Honduras coach Reinaldo Rueda expects his team to restore some pride in an unlikely attempt to reach the World Cup second round on Friday.
The central American side have lost both their opening games in South Africa but can still theoretically qualify from Group H.
To do that they must beat Switzerland in Bloemfontein, hope Chile beat Spain and make up four goals on Vicente del Bosque's side.
And though it may seem beyond the realms of possibility, Rueda has promised that his side will be doing their utmost to win and earn some respect.
"We must go out to win, and dignity must emerge," Rueda said. "We must take into account that we still mathematically have a faint hope of qualifying.
"What has happened is rather sad. We have never lost two matches like this before. We have been unable to showcase our skills.
"I want the players to show that just being in the tournament is not enough. There are huge expectations in Honduras.
"We know we have to score goals and even if we do that we are relying on other results. We have seen what Slovakia did to Italy and we have our own pride to think about.''
Rueda accepts his job could be on the line if Honduras bow out at the group stage.
"This game might be my farewell, depending on what the people who hired me think about the situation,'' he said.
