THE STARTING 11: TFC's Central American security precautions

Estadio Nacional. "Urine Bombs" not pictured

Tomorrow night marks Toronto FC's first foray into Central America proper when The Reds travel to Tegucigalpa, Honduras. While Latin America is full of lovely people - it's not exactly famous for being stable and/or crime-free. As if the flight into Tegucigalpa's airport, considered one of the most dangerous approaches in the world (please watch frightening video below - unless you are flying there today!), wasn't scary enough - TFC will have to take extra precautions during their Honduran trip. How do those Reds plan to stay safe?

11. Never, ever giggle at the word "Tegucigalpa"

10. American players to wear even bigger Canadian flags on sleeves

9. Everyone must walk behind Jon Conway in open spaces

8. Keep the bus running

7. Wear three seatbelts on approach to Toncontin Airport (again, the video below!)

6. Large magnets put in de Guzman's hair to attract thrown batteries during corners

5. Immediately hand over Nick Garcia in hostage or kidnap scenarios

4. Wear t-shirts saying "El Salvador Sucks" on them

3. Keep yelling "We know Amado Guevara!"

2. Team to grow intimidating "bandito" handlebar moustaches

1. Get in. Lose game. Get out.
