Spain was eliminated from the Olympic soccer tournament Sunday after losing to Honduras 1-0 and failing to score any points in its first two games.

Japan, which beat Spain 1-0 in the first round, defeated Morocco by the same score on Sunday, taking the lead in Group D with six points and qualifying mathematically for the quarterfinals.

Honduras, which tied Morocco 2-2 last Thursday in Glasgow, is in second place in the group with four points, followed by the North African squad, which has one point.

Spain will say farewell to the Olympics with a match against Morocco on Aug. 1 in Manchester, while Japan and Honduras will play in Coventry.
