Chacon recalled to Honduras
2001 MLS MVP Alex Pineda Chacon has been recalled to the Honduran national team for the first time in nearly two years for the Carlsberg Cup in February.
Chacon, who took MLS by storm in his first season last year with the now defunct Miami Fusion,
has not played for the Catrachos since the first round of Central American Qualifying in a 1-0 loss to Panama on April 2 2000.
The 32-year old, who scored 19 goals in 25 games en route to his most valuable player award, will play for the national team in Hong Kong against the hosts, China, and Slovenia February 13-15.
This will be the first action for Honduras since their elimination from World Cup Qualifying in November.
