The USA-Honduras World Cup qualifier scheduled for Oct. 10 in San Pedro Sula, Honduras will be played as scheduled, FIFA announced on Tuesday after an executive committee meeting to determine a course of action.

FIFA determined that the political conflict in Honduras had not caused safety concerns that would put the match at risk, but did state that FIFA's stance could change if the situation worsens.

What's our take? By all accounts, the situation in Honduras has remained peaceful, so there appears to be no immediate need to rush into moving or postponing the match. SBI will be in San Pedro Sula for the match so be sure to follow our coverage beginning next Thursday.

What do you think of this development? Planning to make the trip to Honduras? Still trying to figure out how and where you will watch the match?
