[HEXAGONAL] Members of El Salvador's national team resumed training on Monday in San Salvador for Saturday's critical World Cup 2010 qualifier against the USA at Estadio Cuscatlan (TV: ESPN2, TeleFutura, live, 9 pm ET). Their Mexican coach, Carlos De los Cobos, admitted that valuable training was lost when the players went on strike last week in a dispute over unpaid bonuses, but he added they have a week to get ready for the game against the Americans.

Having opened at home with a 2-2 tie against Trinidad & Tobago, the Salvadorans can't afford to lose to the Americans and open with only one point in two games at home.

The only newcomer to the training squad is former USL-2 (Real Maryland) player Dennis Alas, who returned to El Salvador and plays for Luis Angel Firpo.

The Salvadoran squad includes recent New York Red Bulls signee Alfredo Pacheco. Also selected were former Los Angeles area prep star Ivan Miranda and former D.C. United player Eliseo Quintanilla.

Pacheco is the only player currently affiliated with a foreign club.

After the U.S. game, El Salvador travels to Costa Rica to face the Ticos on April 1.

EL SALVADOR ROSTER:
Goalkeepers: Juan Jose Gomez (Luis Angel Firpo), Luis Castro (FAS), Miguel Montes (Nejapa).
Defenders: Manuel Salazar (Luis Angel Firpo), Marvin Gonzalez (FAS), Alfredo Pacheco (New York Red Bulls), Alexander Escobar (Metapan), Carlos Monteagudo (Luis Angel Firpo), Mardoqueo Enriquez (FAS), Deris Umanzor (Aguila), Luis Hernandez (Aguila).
Midfielders: Dennis Alas (Firpo), Cristian Castillo (Alianza), Ramon Sanchez (Alianza), William Torres (Aguila), Edwin Miranda (free agent), Julio Martinez (Metapan), Oscar Jimenez (Alianza), Osael Romero (Vista Hermosa).
Forwards: Salvador Coreas (Vista Hermosa), Rudis Corrales (Aguila), Eliseo Quintanilla (Aguila), Lester Blanco (Chalatenango), Carlos Ayala (Chalatenango), Rodolfo Zelaya (Alianza).
