[USA-HONDURAS] Honduras arrived in San Jose to begin training for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against the USA in Sandy, Utah. San Jose is the MLS home to Catrachos Victor Bernardez, Marvin Chavez and Walter Martinez, though only Chavez will be headed on to Utah. Bernandez is suspended, leaving the Bicolor desperately thin in the middle of the backline, where it is already missing injured giant Maynor Figueroa.

Center back Osman Chavez is also injured, leaving only David Velasquez, who started in the 2-0 win over Jamaica on Tuesday night, and Juan Pablo Montes available.

There was talk in the Honduran press of bringing in Johnny Leveron, who is scheduled to start for the Vancouver Whitecaps Saturday against the New England Revolution.

Two other starters -- the Houston Dynamo's Oscar Boniek Garcia, who scored against Jamaica, and Celtic defender Emilio Izaguirre -- are also injured but hope to play on Tuesday.

The Catrachos will train through Sunday in San Jose and leave for Salt Lake City on Monday morning.
