Andy Najar is a step closer to representing his country in its quest for the Olympics.
Najar has been included on Honduras' 28-man preliminary roster for Olympic qualifying, which will be narrowed down to the final cut on Friday, according to reports out of Honduras.
The speedy, 18-year-old D.C. United winger trained with Tottenham in the offseason and has been in fine form during the preseason. Representatives from Honduras' coaching staff had met with D.C. United front office personnel earlier during the preseason to talk about Najar's potential international inclusion. He has two caps with the senior national team, playing in September friendlies against Colombia and Paraguay.
Honduras is slated to play its group games in qualifying at the Home Depot Center against Mexico, Panama and Trinidad and Tobago.
What do you think of this development? Hope to see Najar make the final cut?
