From Sounders FC:

Seattle Sounders FC announced today that the U.S. National Team has called in midfielder Brad Evans for the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Evans will join the national team for training next week in Seattle. The U.S. faces Grenada in its first Gold Cup group match on July 4 at Qwest Field. Kickoff is 6 p.m. PT. That game is preceded in the doubleheader with a match featuring Honduras and Haiti at 4 p.m. PT.

This will be the first Senior National Team selection for Evans, 24. He was with the U-20 National Team at the 2005 FIFA Youth World Championships.

The U.S. will also play Honduras in Washington, D.C., on July 8 and Haiti at Foxborough, Massachusetts, on July 11. Quarterfinal games are July 18 and 19 in Philadelphia and Dallas, respectively. Semifinals will be July 23 in Chicago and the Gold Cup final is July 26 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Evans has started 14 games for Seattle and ranks second in minutes (1249). He has scored two goals and added an assist. He becomes the second Sounders FC player called for Gold Cup duty. Tyrone Marshall will represent Jamaica.
