[WORLD CUP COUNTDOWN] Dallas product Ramon Nunez (White High School, Texans, SMU and FC Dallas) wasn't called up for the Honduran national team's match against Turkey March 3. He was one of three regulars during World Cup Coach Reinaldo Rueda did not call up.

Nunez moved to Mexico last year to play for Puebla. After a strong Torneo Clausura, he was transferred to Cruz Azul but fell out of favor with the Cemetaros and returned to Honduras in January to play for Olimpia.

Also dropped were goalie Noel Valladares and defender Osman Chavez, who was released by Honduran club Platense in January and failed in his bid to join an English club during the January transfer window.

The Catrachos' roster otherwise is dominated by their European-based players, including three each from English and Italian clubs.

Honduras Roster:
GOALKEEPERS: Ricardo Canales (Motagua), Donis Escober (Olimpia)
DEFENDERS: Maynor Figueroa (Wigan/ENG), Erick Norales (Marathon), Edgar Alvarez (Bari/ITA), Johny Palacios (Olimpia), Emilio Izaguirre (Motagua), Victor Bernardez (Anderlecht/BEL), Mauricio Sabillon (Hangzhou Luchen/CHN), Mariano Acevedo (Marathon)
MIDFIELDERS: Amado Guevara (Motagua), Danilo Turcios (Olimpia), Julio Cesar de Leon (Torino/ITA), Wilson Palacios (Tottenham/ENG), Hendry Thomas (Wigan/ENG)
FORWARDS: David Suazo (Genoa/ITA), Carlos Pavon (Real Espana), Walter Martinez (Marathon), Carlo Costly (Vaslui/ROM), Georgie Welcome (Motagua)
