BY foxsports • December 10, 2009

Honduras will be setting up its World Cup training base in Johannesburg.

Football officials in the Central American country announced the plans on Thursday, and said pre-World Cup training would probably take place in Europe.

Alfred Hawit, secretary of the Honduran federation, listed Italy, England, France and Austria as possibilities.

Honduras, appearing in only its second World Cup, plays in Group H and faces Chile on June 16 at Nelspruit, Spain on June 21 at Johannesburg, and Switzerland on June 25 at Bloemfontein.
