This announcement came a couple hours ago. Two Major League Soccer players were called up: midfielder Brek Shea and defender Heath Pearce, each from Dallas. Considering the photo shoot those guys were involved in recently, it’s been a nice couple weeks for ’em.
The USMNT plays Poland next Saturday, Oct. 9, in Chicago and then Colombia on Tuesday, Oct. 12, in Philadelphia.
