SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras — One of Kansas City’s favorite soccer couples, Roger Espinoza and Lo’eau LaBonta, took some time during the offseason to travel to Honduras and speak to a group of youth academy girls.

Espinoza, who was born in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, is a midfielder for Sporting Kansas City and his wife, LaBonta, is a midfielder for the Kansas City Current.

The duo visited the Honduras women’s national team youth training session. The Honduran Football Federation is investing in their youth national team infrastructure to give the young players access to the training fields and gymnasium near the men’s and women’s national team home stadium, Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano.

LaBonta and her Current teammates, fresh off a runner-up NWSL campaign, donated cleats to the academy girls.

Thank you to my teammates on @thekccurrent for providing cleats for these aspiring college/pro athletes! #PowerfulWomenEmpowerWomen
