TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – With an eye on the upcoming CONCACAF Gold Cup playoff against French Guiana later in the month, Honduras head coach Jorge Luis Pinto invited on Tuesday 20 domestic-based players to a mini-camp, March 15-18, in Comayagua. 

The list included seven players from 2014/15 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinalist Olimpia, highlighted by forward Antony Lozano, who had a team-best four goals in the competition. 

French Guiana, which finished fifth in the 2014 Caribbean Cup to keep alive its hopes of a first-ever Gold Cup appearance, will host the series’ first leg on March 25.  The sides will meet again four days later in Tegucigalpa. 

Forwards Sholby Martínez (Vida) and Erick Andino (Victoria) received their first call-ups.
