The Honduras National Team is one of the "historic" of the region since it was created in 1921 and has participated in three World Cups (Spain 1982, South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014). And at the Concacaf level, it has a pending account: it could never win the Gold Cup, being the vice-champions to the 1991 edition. On the other hand, it does have four editions of the Uncaf Nations Cup (1993, 1995, 2011 and 2017). For this reason, in the next Concacaf Gold Cup he wants to be an important protagonist again.

What will happen to Jerry Bengston, Bryan Róchez and Muma Fernández?

In the last edition of the Concacaf Nations League, Jerry Bengston, Bryan Róchez and Muma Fernández were surprisingly absent. Coach Fabián Coito didn't mention them, causing great controversy in the country because they are three of the historical players. Even with a couple of days to make the list official, can they be taken into account again?
