Seattle Sounders player Alex Roldan will not be representing El Salvador during the upcoming June international window. 

The player turned down the initial call up, citing February’s incident as the reason for stepping back. 

Roldan refers to the occurrences during the octagonal round of the Concacaf World Cup qualifiers a few months back when La Selecta published a statement explaining the Salvadorian football federation had failed to pay the bonuses promised for the victory against Honduras. 

The players took action, initially threatening to boycott the subsequent match against Canada on February 2, before eventually taking the field to play as a united group for themselves. 

“As a united group, we have decided to play and give everything to keep this illusion of a country alive,” the El Salvadorian players said in a statement.
