Earthquakes center back Victor Bernardez has been called to the Honduras national team ahead of its friendly against Venezuela on March 5.

Bernardez will depart for Honduras after the Earthquakes' preseason game on Sunday against Portmore United (Jamaica) to complete the Rose City Invitational in Portland, Ore. Honduras was drawn into Group E at the 2014 FIFA World Cup along with Switzerland, Ecuador and France.

Bernardez is expected to return to the Earthquakes in time to face Mexico's Toluca FC on March 11 in CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal action.

The Earthquakes announced they will close their preseason with an exhibition against their USL-PRO affiliate, Sacramento Republic FC, in Turlock on March 5 at Cal State Stanislaus.
