Honduras coach Reinaldo Rueda has admitted he may have to consider his future if the team do not receive a bonus that was promised to them for reaching the World Cup.
Rafael Leonardo Callejas, president of the Honduran federation, has acknowledged the players and staff are owed $1.3million (£870,000) and hopes to make the payment within a week.
However, it is unclear why the payment is late and Rueda is concerned about how his players might be affected if the delay continues.
Honduras have three friendly matches in May and June in Europe before travelling to the World Cup to play in Group H with Spain, Chile and Switzerland.
"The players want to be relaxed going into May and I want to go to Europe with a group concentrated on the job before them," said Rueda.
"I hope this happens and it does not influence my decision to stay with the national team."
Honduras captain Amado Guevara added: "We are working hard and we want the authorities to change their attitude, even though we don't know why they have not paid us."
Some reports have suggested that Fifa recently made a payment of about $1million to the Honduran federation.
