‘Bolillo’ Gómez surprises as Honduras calls for octagonal Concacaf to close
San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
On Friday, Hernán Darío “Polillo” Gomez made the official call for the Honduran national team to close the FIFA World Cup 2022 CONCACAF match in Qatar, from which the national team has already been excluded.
The Colombian coach decided to call up 26 footballers for the last three games of Bicolor, which will score its first win in the octagonal lane to end a failed operation.
“Bolillo” Gómez also called up three guest players to be part of the focus. They are Sylvin Guevara (Honduran Progreso), Gerson Chavez (Real Spain) and Marvin Bernardez (Vida).
Honduras meets Panama on Thursday, March 24, then hosts Mexico at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday, March 27, and closes off against Jamaica on Wednesday, March 30.
In the World Cup qualifying standings, the duo earned just three points as a result of three draws and eight defeats.
The list highlights the absences of Albert Ellis, Anthony “Choco” Lozano and Debbie Flores, who will not be able to travel to these matches as their teams are fighting for not to be relegated to Europe. Minor Figueroa does not appear.
