[WORLD CUP 2014] Honduras national team coach Luis Suarez named 23 players for his World Cup training camp that begins May 12 in Sunrise, Fla. The squad includes four MLS players, two of whom, Colorado winger Marvin Chavez and New England forward Jerry Bengtson, hardly play.

Chavez has played just 38 minutes in two appearances since moving from San Jose to the Rapids in an offseason trade. Bengston has made just one start in nine games for the Revs. He has scored only four goals in 34 matches over three MLS seasons. San Jose defender Victor Bernardez and Houston midfielder Boniek Garcia are also in the squad.

The Catrachos also feature four former MLS players. Andy Najar and Roger Espinoza, who are both U.S. residents, parlayed strong MLS careers in moves abroad to Anderlecht and Stoke City. Mario Martinez and Carlo Costly played briefly in MLS and are now back in Honduras at Real Espana.

The Catrachos will play three warmups in the United States: Turkey at Washington's RFK Stadium on May 29, Israel at Houston's BBVA Compass Stadium on June 1 and England in Miami on June 7.
