[INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLIES] Honduras, which opens the Hexagonal against the United States on Feb. 6, plays Peru in a friendly game Wednesday in Houston. Three players still involved in the MLS Cup playoffs, including Oscar Boniek Garcia of the hometown Dynamo, have been called up by the Catrachos.

Mario Martinez, whose goal moved the Seattle Sounders into the Western Conference final, and D.C. United's Andy Najar, who remains suspended, were also called up, along with the New England Revolution's Jerry Bengtson.

Sounders coach Sigi Schmid said Martinez was "stuck between a rock and a hard place," while Houston coach Dominic Kinnear said the good thing was that Garcia at least didn't have to travel for the game.

Najar will serve the third game of his suspension for throwing a ball at referee Jair Marrufo in Sunday's match against Houston in the second leg of the Eastern Conference final.

New York's Roy Miller and Columbus Crew forward Jairo Arrieta are the only MLS players in Costa Rica's squad for its game at Bolivia.

FC Dallas forward Blas Perez and Philadelphia Union midfielder Gabriel Gomez are in the Panama squad to face Spain in Panama City.
