Midfielder Replaced by Jerry Palacios

Honduras midfielder Julio Cesar de Leon has been ruled out of the World Cup with a right leg injury. Team officials say the hard-tackling midfielder tore a muscle in his leg and will be replaced in the starting lineup against Chile tomorrow (Wednesday) by Jerry Palacios.

De Leon is one of the team’s mainstays, and has made 77 international appearances.
