Houston Dynamo left back Corey Ashe will join the U.S. Men’s National Team camp ahead of the team’s friendly vs. Belgium on May 29th, U.S. Soccer announced on Thursday.
Ashe will be with the team for the Belgium friendly before returning to the Dynamo.
The U.S. team is missing several players from the early part of the team’s training camp, with left backs Edgar Castillo (Copa Libertadores with Club Tijuana) and Fabian Johnson (Bundesliga relegation playoff with Hoffenheim) still with their club teams. Ashe will help provide some depth at left back.
Ashe, 27, has never been capped by the U.S. Men’s National Team, but was a regular fixture in the youth national team set-up, even serving as captain of the U.S. Under-17 Men’s National Team.
What do you think of the call-up? Surprised to not see some other left backs called in? Think Ashe merits a look?
