FIFA: U.S. to play in Honduras despite turmoil

RIO DE JANEIRO -- FIFA says the United States' World Cup qualifier against Honduras will take place in San Pedro Sula next month despite turmoil in the Central American country.

FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke said Tuesday following an executive committee meeting that the crisis in Honduras following the ouster of President Manuel Zelaya on June 28 hasn't caused safety concerns that jeopardize the match. He said FIFA's stance can change if the situation worsens.

The United States (5-2-1), seeking its sixth straight World Cup berth, leads North and Central America and the Caribbean with 16 points. Mexico (5-3) is second with 15, followed by Honduras (4-3-1) with 13 and Costa Rica (4-4) with 12. The top three nations qualify for next year's tournament in South Africa, and the No. 4 team faces South America's fifth-place nation in a home-and-home playoff for a berth.
