    TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – Honduras head coach Jorge Luis Pinto named Thursday an 18-man roster for an international friendly against Jamaica on February 16, 2017, at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas.

    It will be the Catrachos’ first match since capturing the Copa Centroamericana title last month, finishing atop the six-team table with a 4W-1D-0L record to qualify for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

    The selection features Real España midfielder Jorge Claros, who earned Copa Centroamericana’s Golden Ball honors.  Also meriting call-ups were three members of the Copa’s Bext XI -- Motagua forwards Erick Andino and Rubilio Castillo, each of whom scored two goals, and Honduras Progreso defender Jairo Puerto.

    Honduras is preparing for its World Cup qualifier at the United States on March 24.
