No Foreign-Based Players for Jamaica Game In Cary

During tonight's LA v. New England MLS match-up, US National Team manager Bruce Arena spent a few minutes in the booth chatting with Rob & Marcello. Although we knew April 11th wasn't an international match day, a few of us had held out hopes that a few international-based players such as Bobby Convey and Marcus Hahnemann (who have now clinched both promotion to the Premier League and 1st place in the Coca-Cola Championship with Reading) would be called in. However, Arena confirmed during the interview that the squad for the Jamaica game would be entirely MLS-based. Arena stated that he has narrowed his roster to 35 players at this point competing for 23 roster spots. 18 will be called in for the game in Cary. The roster will be selected after this weekend's MLS games are complete and the pool's current injury status is assessed.
