Mexico, Honduras qualify


In Saturday's semi-finals, Mexico beat Canada 3-1 in Kansas City to return to the Games for the 10th time after last taking part in Athens in 2004.

The Mexicans missed out on the 2008 Beijing Games when their coach was former Real Madrid striker Hugo Sanchez who lost his job as a result.

Honduras won their semi-final 3-2 after extra-time against El Salvador in Kansas City and will go to their third Olympic soccer event.

The Olympic tournament kicks off on July 25, two days before the official opening of the London Games.
