TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras.- With a 27-man roster, the Honduras under-20 national team opened its second training camp on Monday under the guidance of head coach Jorge Jimenez.
The players were chosen after tryouts in various locations throughout the country.
"We are very encouraged with the group, now in its second microcycle, we will carry double training sessions in the capital," Jimenez told Honduran newspaper La Prensa.
