Rueda waiting on injured pair for opener

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Honduras coach Reinaldo Rueda will wait until the day before his team's World Cup opener against Chile before deciding whether David Suazo and Wilson Palacios should play.

Rueda says he's decided on 90 percent of his lineup for Wednesday's Group H match, and that "remaining 10 percent is made up of Suazo and Palacios."

Striker Suazo and midfielder Palacios are key players for Honduras. They trained apart from the 23-man squad Thursday while the other players took part in a training match.

Rueda said the pair had muscle injuries that were not serious, but needed to be treated with care.
