[MLS 2103 COUNTDOWN]One player who wasn't with the Honduras national team for its game against the USA on Wednesday was Ramon Nunez. Like Roger Espinoza, Nunez is a product of the U.S. youth system but plays for the Catrachos. Nunez could be returning to his hometown FC Dallas after his contract with Leeds United was terminated by mutual consent last week.

Nunez, 27, is with FC Dallas in Mexico as he recovers from a  torn ACL suffered in September. He played FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman for one season at SMU and spent four years in MLS with Dallas and Chivas USA before moving on to Honduras, Mexico and more recently England.

“He’s a very good player who has been in and out of the league playing here and [other places],” FC Dallas technical director Fernando Clavijo told MLSsoccer.com. “He’s still young and 27. It’s a calculated risk coming off an ACL, because right now we’re looking at him to see how he clears physicals.”

Nunez played all three games for Honduras at the 2010 World Cup.
