Catrachos call up Bengtson and three other MLS players

[HEXAGONAL COUNTDOWN] Honduras called up 15 foreign-based players -- including Victor Bernardez and Marvin Chavez (San Jose Earthquakes), Oscar Boniek Garcia (Houston Dynamo) and Jerry Bengtson (New England Revolution) -- for the Catrachos' World Cup qualifiers against Mexico and Panama in September. Bengston had been dropped from the team in June after getting into a disagreement with Colombian coach Luis Suarez.

Former MLS Rookie of the Year Andy Najar joined Belgian champion Anderlecht's first team after the Gold Cup and has made two league appearances.

Missing is Roger Rojas, who is in the process of completing a loan move from Olimpia to English club West Ham United.
