Honduras vs. El Salvador


Where: RFK Stadium

When: 4:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Washington area has become a home away from home for El Salvador, but it has also been a kind venue for Honduras in the past. A sellout crowd of 44,000 is expected for the matchup between the two CONCACAF rivals.

Both countries are preparing for the start of the semifinal round of qualifiers for the 2014 World Cup in six days. El Salvador has qualifiers at Costa Rica on June 8 and at home against Mexico on June 12, while the Catrachos host Panama and visit Canada on those dates.

El Salvador last played at RFK in front of a raucous crowd last August that saw the Salvadorans come back from one goal down in the final seven minutes to defeat Venezuela, 2-1. Honduras, meanwhile, last played in Washington in 2009, when it fell to the United States, 2-0, in a Gold Cup first-round match.

Honduras did not call-up D.C. United midfielder Andy Najar for this stretch of games.
