Turcios Has Bittersweet Birthday

Honduras’ Midfielder Danilo Elvis Turcios, who has 80 Honduras caps, sustained a left knee injury on Saturday, which may have ended his 2010 World Cup dream.

“We suspect it could be a medial collateral ligament, that there could be a pull or even a rupture…This would mean surgery, which would leave him out of the World Cup,” club doctor Elmer Lopez explained.

It was on Turcios’ 32nd birthday that he was injured playing for Olimpia in the second leg of the Honduran Clausura championship final. Olimpia lost 1-0 to Motagua, but did win the title 3-2 on aggregate.
