KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) - A soccer player from Jamaica tested positive for a banned substance after a World Cup qualifying match against Honduras, the latest doping case involving athletes from the Caribbean island.

The Jamaica Football Federation says a ``member of the Jamaican squad returned an adverse analytical finding on his urine sample'' after the June 11 game.

The federation says it was informed of the result by FIFA on Tuesday.

The player and the substance involved were not identified. Jamaica lost 2-0 and is last in a six-team CONCACAF qualifying group led by the United States.

Last week, Jamaican sprinters Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson were confirmed to have tested positive for oxilofrine, a banned stimulant, among five cases involving track and field athletes.
