Clark and Rolfe Out Due to Injury; Bradley Calls Up 2 Dynamo Players
Here’s a brief update on what’s going on over in Florida, where the US Men are holding their training camp:
On Monday, Bob Bradley announced that Chris Rolfe and Ricardo Clark would be leaving the camp due to knee injuries. Clark sprained his right knee ligament last weekend in the CONCACAF Champions Cup and Rolfe is out with the same condition.
Houston Dynamo teammates Wade Barrett and Brian Mullan have been added in their place.
Wade Barret is a defender with one cap with the US National Team, which he earned in 2002 against El Salvador. Barret was called up into camp in 2005 for the World Cup qualifier against Costa Rica, however suffered a hamstring injury and wasn’t able to hop onto the pitch.
Brian Mullan is a midfielder and currently has two caps with the US MNT. He earned his first in 2004 against Poland.
The camp began on Monday and will continue until Friday, when they travel to Tampa, Florida in preparation for their Sunday match against Ecuador.
