No Call Up for Roger
Roger Espinoza appeared in all of Honduras' games in the Gold Cup recently, but he did not get himself a spot on the Honduran's World Cup Qualifying roster for the upcoming qualifier against Costa Rica on August 12th. While some people may be a little surprised since Espinoza has been a staple at least in camp for most of this round of qualifying, it's not incredibly surprising. With Espinoza missing almost a month while away at the Gold Cup, the Honduran coach could be looking to avoid burning bridges with Coach Onalfo by letting Espinoza stay with the Wizards for this round of qualifiers. I think Espinoza will definitely be back with the national team soon.
