[HONDURAS]
Kansas City Wizards rookie Roger Espinoza has been called up for the Honduran national team's training camp that begins Thursday in Miami.

Espinoza, who attended Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colo., and played at Yavapai College and Ohio State before turning pro in 2008, is one of four MLS players called into camp long with Amado Guevara (Toronto FC), Mauricio Castro (New England) and Ivan Guerrero (D.C. United).
