Houston Dynamo midfielder Ricardo Clark has been called in to the U.S. national team camp ahead of its World Cup qualifier against Costa Rica on Wednesday. Clark replaces Maurice Edu, who suffered a leg injury last week that could keep him out an extended period of time.
Set to join the U.S. team in Costa Rica on Tuesday, Clark is fresh from having helped Houston rout Toronto FC, 3-0, on Saturday and he will look to battle for a spot on the match-day roster. With Michael Bradley and Pablo Mastroeni projected to start vs. Costa Rica, Clark could wind up battling Jose Francisco Torres and Sacha Kljestan for the role of first midfielder off the bench.
What do you think of Clark joining the squad? Hoping he gets into the Costa Rica match? Disappointed that Edu couldn't make it? Were you hoping for some other player to get the late call?
