Roger Espinoza, “El Chino”
Fans are running a gamet of emotions after the Honduran soccer player injured his ankle while playing for the Sporting Kansas City team in the USA this past weekend. The talented “futbol” player could be out of commission as long as a month. Espinoza tangled with Andy Gruenebaum near the end of the USA match (a 1-1 draw), and had to be taken off the field in a stretcher. He was officially diagnosed with a right anterior medial ankle sprain.
Espinoza, nicknamed “El Chino”, is 25, and was one of three overage players selected by head coach Luis Suarez to represent Honduras in the Olympics sub-23 competition earlier this year. Espinoza gained world-wide recognition with his soccer expertise at the Olympics, but he is no stranger to pressure. El Chino has made numerous appearances for the Honduras National Team at the highest levels, including the UNCAF Nations Cup, CONCACAF Gold Cup, and FIFA World Cup.
Wilson Palacios is rumored as a possible stand-in for Espinoza in the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014™ qualifying matches, as he is currently in La Ceiba, Honduras on personal business.
