Espinoza With Honduras for Gold Cup
Well the first of what will be four or five announcements of Sporting KC players heading to the Gold Cup appears to have been made. Based on an article out of Honduras, it appears that defender, Roger Espinoza has been named to at least the preliminary roster for Honduras for this summer's tournament. Espinoza is listed along with currently MLS players Andy Najar of DC and Marvin Chavez of FC Dallas. In the tournament from June 5th through the 25th, Honduras will play in Group B, matched with Guatemala, Jamaica, and Grenada. Espinoza could be matched up against teammates Shavar Thomas (Jamaica) and Craig Rocastle (Grenada) if both are called up for their national teams. The other two potentially call ups are in Group C with Stephane Auvray (Guadeloupe) and Teal Bunbury (USA).
