TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) -Honduras has named Wigan pair Maynor Figueroa and Roger Espinoza in its squad for the World Cup qualifier against the United States on Feb. 6 in San Pedro Sula.

Espinoza became a U.S. citizen in 2008 but opted to play for Honduras at the London Olympics.

The match is in the first round of a home-and-away round-robin series among six countries in the CONCACAF region. Jamaica, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica and the United States are in the hexagonal series with the top three teams qualifying automatically for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The fourth-place team faces an intercontinental playoff against the Oceania winners to qualify.
