Honduras' Garcia plays down injury
Honduras midfielder Boniek Garcia says he isn't worried about a hamstring injury that forced him out of Houston Dynamo's game with LA Galaxy after only 18 minutes.
Garcia, who was a part of the squad that went to South Africa in 2010 and played a vital role in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying campaign, has a training camp with his national side on Monday, but insists that he will be fit for the summer showpiece.
"I'm not worried," Garcia told MLSsoccer after the game. "After being taken a look at by the doctor for 20 minutes it was more precautionary than anything."
Dynamo won the game 1-0 thanks to a goal from Giles Barnes and after the game Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear played down fears over Garcia's injury.
"It's a minor hamstring strain, so that's what they tell me," he said. "I don't think it's terrible. It's not something that's going to keep him out for a long period of time, but he said he felt something in the back of his leg. That's where the icepack went, and it was enough to take him out of the game."
