Jeff Parke makes first international appearance, Brad Evans earns sixth cap

parke mug.jpgSounders FC defender Jeff Parke earned his first cap with the U.S. men’s national team Wednesday in Panama. The 29-year-old entered the friendly in the 55th minute and helped the 10-man U.S. hold on for a 1-0 win.

Parke replaced forward Chris Wondolowski following a straight red card to defender Geoff Cameron. He made a dangerous mistake in the 86th minute, but Panamanian forward Blas Perez fired wide with an open shot.

After a long wait, Parke received his first call-up to U.S. camp earlier this month. He and Sounders teammates Brad Evans replaced defenders Omar Gonzalez and George John, who were each dealing with club-related moves.

Parke talked to me about his previous frustration on the national-team level back in October. Ancient history, it seems.

Evans entered the game in the 66th minute as a double substitution to earn his sixth cap. He and Jeff Larentowicz came on for Ricardo Clark and goal scorer Graham Zusi, who tallied in the ninth minute.
