Espinoza Capped in Draw with El Salvador (Thomas Plays in Friendly)

Roger Espinoza earned his 16th cap of his international career over the weekend playing for Honduras in Houston against El Salvador. Espinoza came on as a substitute in the 54th minute. At that point Honduras had a 2-0 lead over El Salvador, but two goals in the span of 3 minutes saw El Salvador tie the game at 2-2. Honduras begin the Gold Cup on June 6th in LA against Guatemala. The cap ties Espinoza with Gary Glasgow for the most capped non-US player while a member of the Wizards.

In other international news for KC, Shavar Thomas and Jamaica had a friendly against the reserve side of Brazilian club Palmeiras FC. The Reggae Boyz fell 2-0 to the Brazilians, with Thomas being called for a penalty that led to the second goal after Jamaica's keeper mis-hit a clearance after a back pass from Thomas. Jamaica is in the same group as Honduras and opens against Craig Rocastle and Grenada out at the Home Depot Center on the 6th.
