Honduras coach Reynaldo Rueda says he may quit if he and his World Cup-bound team are not paid a $1.3-million US bonus promised by the country's football federation for qualifying for the world tournament.

Rafael Leonardo Callejas, president of the Honduran federation, has acknowledged the players and staff are owed the money, and says he hopes to make the payment within a week.

Honduras will be playing in only its second World Cup — it failed to win a game in 1982 — and is drawn in Group H with Spain, Chile and Switzerland.

The World Cup, in South Africa, kicks off June 11.
