Uh-oh! Mexico’s soccer federation president Justino Compean was caught giving a group of rowdy Honduran fans the finger upon arriving at the World Cup qualifier in San Pedro Sula. Not once, but twice!
The only thing worse than the act was Compean’s excuse: he claimed it only looked that way because he had injured his finger!

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras – When their national anthem played ahead of Wednesday’s World Cup Qualifier, the droplet of Americans amid the sea of Hondurans could be heard singing along throughout much of the deafening Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano. There were only three dozen or so of them, but for those eight lines, they would not be drowned out by the fevered drums, air horns, stomping and chanting of 35,000 locals.
Honduras 2, USA 1.
