Honduras needs a few extra shirts

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) — Honduras faced some problems exchanging shirts at the end of it's last match because the Central American country is traveling without enough extra equipment.

Team general manager Osman Madrid said Sunday the problem arose after Thursday's 2-2 draw with Belarus in Villach, Austria, when a Belarus federation official asked to exchange shirts. Madrid said the request was initially denied, and then granted so as not to seem arrogant.

Teams traditionally exchange jerseys after matches as a sign of sportsmanship.

Madrid said more shirts would be on hand Wednesday when Honduras faces Azerbaijan. Honduras plays in Group H of the World Cup with Spain, Chile and Switzerland.
