Jerry Bengtson is headed back home. Again.
For the fourth time in his brief tenure with the New England Revolution, the 25-year-old striker has been called up by the Honduras National Team for international competition.
With the Copa Centroamericana tournament set to kick off on Jan. 18, and a World Cup Qualifier against the United States on Feb. 6, Bengtson is expected to miss the first three weeks of the Revolution’s preseason camp.
He is expected to re-join the team ahead of the FC Tucson Desert Diamond Cup tournament.
Bengtson has scored eight goals for Honduras, including a trio of tallies at the 2012 Summer Olympics, since inking a designated player deal with New England last July.
In 13 games for the Revolution, he scored two goals – his first one coming in his MLS debut on Jul. 8 vs. New York.
