Reinaldo Rueda, coach of Honduras, can pay attention to players who play in the United States Major League Soccer.
With no time to lose, the Honduras National Team confirmed their first match of 2024 by officially announcing the duel against their counterpart Iceland in Miami.
The match is scheduled for January 17, 2024 and will be played at the DRV Pink Stadium, which is the home of Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami.
For this reason, the Honduran National Bicolor has confirmed this friendly before the final battle against Costa Rica in March 2024 in a match that will take place in Dallas, United States. The winning country will advance to Copa América 2024.
Under this context, one of the doubts that exist for this match is Reinaldo Rueda or not the legionnaires for the match against the European squad.
Because this duel will take place in the month of January, the coffee coach cannot call Hondurans who are active in Europe, such as Choco Lozano, Rigoberto Rivas, Deybi Flores, Luis Palma, Alberth Elis, and others.
And the European leagues are at their peak and it is difficult for the clubs of the “Old Continent” to lend the legionnaires of Catrachos.
However, Reinaldo Rueda can call up players who play in the MLS. Among them are Joseph Rosales, Denil Maldonado, Kervin Arriaga, David Ruiz and Brayan Acosta. Major League Soccer will be inactive during that month as the tournament begins in March 2024.
Likewise, the midfielder of the Alajuelense Sports League, Alexander López, may also receive the call from the coach of the Honduran National Team.
Soccer player Andy Nájar, who said goodbye to DC United after two seasons, is another player that should be considered for this preparatory game.
It should be noted that, for this match against Iceland, most of the squad is composed of players from the Honduran National League.
