Five Houston Dynamo players have been out on international duty this week, playing in assorted friendlies across the globe during the FIFA international break.
Arturo Alvarez appeared as a substitute for El Salvador in their Concacaf Nations League Qualifying match against Barbados. The forward played the final 10 minutes in Los Cuscatlecos’ 3-0 victory on Saturday night.
Adolfo Machado and Ronaldo Peña were also on duty with Panama and Venezuela, respectively, but did not see action. Panama fell 3-0 to Japan on Friday, and will play South Korea on Tuesday. Venezuela was defeated 4-2 by the Basque Country national team in a non-FIFA friendly on Friday. They will take on the UAE in Barcelona on Tuesday, where Peña will hope to receive his first senior international cap.
