Houston Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis has been added to the U.S. Men’s National Team squad currently in training camp ahead of upcoming qualifiers against Costa Rica and Mexico, U.S. Soccer announced on Tuesday.
Davis becomes the 24th player in the camp in Denver, where the team is preparing for Friday’s match against Costa Rica.
Davis impressed during the January national team camp, and gives the team three left wing options in the squad, along with Brek Shea and DaMarcus Beasley. With Beasley an option at left back, Klinsmann could be considering the Dynamo captain for some minutes in qualifying, though at this point he seems like a bit of a long shot.
The call-up could also be to help provide some potential injury cover in camp. As it stands, at least one player in camp won’t be in uniform for Friday’s qualifier at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
What do you think of Davis’ late inclusion? See him getting minutes in the upcoming qualifiers, or do you think he’s just heading to Colorado to make up the numbers?
