    SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador – El Salvador will prepare for next month’s Copa Centroamericana with a squad of 25 players, the Federación Salvadoreña de Fútbol (FESFUT) announced Friday.

    Head coach Eduardo Lara, who was named to the post earlier in the month, will convene the team on January 3, 2017, and hold a double-training session at the FESFUT Sports Complex.
