World Cup: Brotherly love for Honduras

June 17, 2010 | 11:05 am

 Honduras will be the first country to have three brothers in a World Cup when Jerry Palacios arrives in South Africa to join brothers Wilson and Johnny. Jerry Palacios, a midfielder and the oldest of the brothers, was called up from Central America to replace Julio Cesar de Leon, who has been ruled out of the tournament with a leg injury.

Honduras, a 1-0 loser to Chile in its opener, meets Spain on Monday in its second game.
