Martinez started and played the full game for Honduras, as his team beat Vietnam 2-0 on Sunday, May 28, to claim its first points of the tournament after losses to France and New Zealand earlier in Group E play.
With three points, Honduras finished in third place in Group E. Unfortunately, the team's margin of victory wasn't enough to overtake Argentina in the third-place rankings, to potentially challenge for a lucky-loser's spot in the knockout rounds. And Saudi Arabia's 1-1 draw against the USA in Group F dropped Honduras to last in the third-place rankings at the end of the group stage.
Honduras was the runner-up at the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship tournament, with Martinez netting in the penalty shoot-out following a 0-0 draw in the final against the USA.
Martinez joined NYRB II two months later and even scored a goal for the team in his USL debut against Harrisburg City. He'll be back in USL action shortly, as Honduras leaves South Korea a little earlier than it might have hoped.
