CARSON, Calif. -- A looming showdown with Mexico at Estadio Azteca certainly had its say in US Soccer's decision to play its first home World Cup qualifier in CONCACAF's final-round Hexagonal in Colorado.

As usual, the Honduran national team will have a strong MLS influence when they take the pitch later this month.

Five MLS players were part of the squad Luis Fernando Suaáez called in for the Copa Centroamericana, which will be played in Costa Rica from Jan. 18-27. Those games – as many as four, should Honduras advance to the final – serve as both the qualifying process for this summer’s Gold Cup as well as a tune-up for World Cup qualifying, which begins with a huge home date vs. the US on Feb. 6.
