    TEGUCIGALPA -- Honduras under-20 national team head coach Jorge Jimenez revealed Tuesday his roster for a training camp in Tegucigalpa, which will take place just days prior to a friendly against El Salvador on May 8.

    Of the 26 players selected, 21 play in the Honduran first division, including midfielder Brayan Velasquez and forward Jorge Bodden, who scored two goals each at the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup.  The only foreign-based player to receive a call-up is Jorge Arturo Cálix of the USA’s D.C. United.

    ”After two games in El Salvador last month, our focus now is to give to the players more competition, especially for those whose teams are out of the final playoff such as Motagua, Real España, Victoria,” Jimenez told CONCACAF.com.  ”In this four days of the camp, the plan is to develop tactical concepts for future official competitions.”

    Earlier this month, Honduras posted a 2-1 victory over host El Salvador in an April 8 friendly.  Two days later, the Catrachos topped Santa Tecla by the same score.

    Honduras and El Salvador are preparing for Central American under-20 qualifiers scheduled to take place later this year.

    The next FIFA U-20 World Cup will be held in New Zealand, May 30-June 20, 2015.
