Honduran Goalkeeper Shot Dead In The Open

Honduran football has been plunged into mourning after goalkeeper Oscar Sein Munguia Zelaya was shot and killed outside a bar in La Ceiba.

Honduran news channel Hoy Mismo said he was killed outside a bar in La Ceiba alongside a friend.
Further reports said the 27-year-old was allegedly shot by a stranger who fled on a motorcycle.

Zelaya was on the books at Club Deportivo Vida, who currently sit eighth in the Honduran top flight. 

'We regret the death of our goalkeeper Oscar Munguia, who died tragically in the early hours of Sunday morning,' the club wrote on Twitter.

'Our condolences to your relatives.'
