[USA-HONDURAS] Honduran national team stars Amado Guevara and Carlos Pavon, both former MLS players, are among the 20 players who traveled with the Catrachos for Saturday's friendly against the USA at the Home Depot Center (TV: Fox Soccer Channel and Galavision, live, 9 pm ET/6 pm PT.). Roger Espinoza of the Kansas City Wizards is the only foreign-based player in the squad.

The USA played and beat Honduras a record four times in 2009, including a 3-2 win at San Pedro Sula that clinched a berth in the World Cup finals.

Goalie Noel Valladares, defenders Mauricio Sabillon, Osman Chavez and Emilio Izaguirre and Pavon are the five starters from that game with the Catrachos.

Guevara was suspended for the October game against the USA.

(On the U.S. side, only two starters -- Jonathan Bornstein and Conor Casey -- from the San Pedro Sula game will be available on Saturday.)

Colombian coach Reinaldo Rueda took Honduras to Florida for training. In a warmup game, the Catrachos beat Canada's U-23 team, 3-1, on goals by Erick Norales, Danilo Turcios and Georgie Welcome.   

Honduras Roster:
Goalkeepers: Ricardo Canales (Motagua), Noel Valladares (Olimpia), Donis Escober (Olimpia).
Defenders: Mariano Acevedo (Marathon), Erick Norales (Marathon), Mauricio Sabillon (Marathon), Emilio Izaguirre (Motagua), Johnny Palacios, Oscar Boniek Garcia (Olimpia), Carlos Palacios (Real Espana), Osman Chavez (Platense).
Midfielders: Roger Espinoza (Kansas City Wizards), Danilo Turcios (Olimpia), Walter Martinez  (Marathon) Jerry Palacios (Marathon), Melvin Valladares (Real Espana), Amado Guevara (Motagua).
Forwards: Georgie Welcome (Motagua), Carlos Pavon (Real Espana).
