What: Soccer friendly at RFK Stadium.

When: 8 p.m.

Tickets: $30, $35.

Preview: El Salvador has seized upon its sizeable following in the Washington area by making several visits in recent years, most recently a 1-0 loss to D.C. United in June in a charity match. The roster for this friendly against its regional rival is expected to include former United midfielders Christian Castillo and Eliseo Quintanilla, as well as veterans Rudis Corrales, Dennis Alas, Ramon Sanchez and Marvin Gonzalez. On Saturday in Los Angeles, El Salvador lost to Honduras on penalty kicks after a 2-2 draw. Alianza forward Rodolfo Zelaya, 22, had both goals. Guatemala, which features Chicago Fire all-star midfielder Marco Pappa, routed Nicaragua, 5-0, on Saturday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Comunicaciones forward Transito Montepeque scored twice. The Chapines' 2-1 victory over El Salvador in March in Los Angeles improved their record in the all-time series to 28-14-20.
