A Honduran player, one of four sent off in a world youth championship match in Doha, Qatar, on Sunday, apologised yesterday for his team. "Our behaviour was very bad and as Hondurans we are very sorry for what happened," said Luis Lagos, sent off in the 73rd minute of the 7-1 defeat to the Netherlands. The referee abandoned the match, declaring the Dutch the winners, in the 77th minute after Honduras were reduced to six players when Luis Oseguerra was carried off on a stretcher.
