    SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras -- With the 2014 Honduran Apertura and the 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) clearly marked on the calendar, Real España kicked off preseason training on Monday at the Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano. 

    For the upcoming two-front battle, the 11-time Honduran champion strengthened its roster with five new faces.  

    Former Herediano striker Ismael Gomez (30) of Argentina and Colombian midfielder Camilo Aguirre (32), who appeared in three 2013/14 CCL matches for semifinalist Alajuelense, are the two new foreign additions.  

    The other reinforcements joined from Honduran first division squads: defenders Oscar Fortin (Deportes Savio) and Porciano Ávila (Parrillas One), plus forward Rony Flores (Victoria). 

    "We want to do well at both tournaments (Apertura and Champions League) and, as a result, we reinforced the team well," head coach Hernan Medford told reporters.

    On June 28, the Aurinegros will move camp to La Ceiba, before shifting to Roatan five days later. 

    Real España will be making its third CCL appearance and will face Mexico’s Pachuca and Municipal of Guatemala in Group 1 play.
