Wigan Athletic pair Hendry Thomas and Maynor Figueroa along with Spurs player Wilson Palacios will be returning to the UK a day later than expected due to orders from the Honduras President Roberto Micheletti.
Following on from the sensational night of World Cup qualification the Honduras squad have been told that they must attend a celebration party in the nation`s capital Tegucigalpa at the invitation of Micheletti.
The country`s elected President Manuel Zelaya was overthrown in a military coup in June and Micheletti who took his place, is under pressure both internationally and at home and it appears that he has seized the World Cup triumph as an opportunity to try and gather some support amongst the public in Honduras and demanded that the players attend the celebration with him.
Thomas, Figueroa and Palacios were all due back in the UK today (Friday) but now will be arriving a day later meaning Wilson Palacios will definitely miss Spurs trip to Portsmouth on Saturday and it will be touch and go for both Hendry Thomas and Maynor Figueroa with the Latics playing Manchester City a day later on Sunday.
A philosophical Harry Redknapp, the Spurs boss told reporters: "We`ve got no choice but to go to Portsmouth without Wilson.
"There`s nothing he can do either. I guess when the President tells you to do something, you can`t do much about it."
Fingers crossed that Figgy and Hendry get back in time and not too worse for wear
