went against

Honduras

in the clash scheduled for preparation for the 2020 Olympics, which start next week, playing in shorter matches to put their fitness to test in Japan.

The Germans were held to a 1-1 draw at the hands of their Central American opponents, as Germany leveled the game courtesy of Felix Uduokhai’s equalizer.

However, the team left the pitch five minutes prior to the end and on the club’s

The Honduras have also confirmed the game was over sooner as “an alleged racist insult” was directed at the Germany international.

But they claim that the incident was just a "

misunderstanding on the pitch
