    SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras – Honduras goalkeeper Luis Lopez is expected to miss the intercontinental playoff with Australia for a place in the 2018 FIFA World Cup after it was reported that he will undergo surgery Tuesday on his right tibia.

    The 24-year-old custodian has not played in a 2017 Honduran Apertura match since departing at halftime of Real España’s 3-2 win over visiting Honduras Progreso on September 23.

    In two CONCACAF qualifiers for Russia 2018 with Lopez as a starter, Honduras was 1W-1D-0L, earning a 2-1 victory over host Trinidad & Tobago on September 1 and drawing 1-1 with the visiting United States four days later.
