Manaus - Honduras coach Luis Fernando Suarez has quit his job following his team's 3-0 loss to Switzerland at the Soccer World Cup.

Wednesday's result left Honduras winless in its three matches and eliminated from the tournament.

Suarez says his contract ended when the team was knocked out of the World Cup, and he has decided against trying to stay on in the post.
