12/30/08: 5 Crew Players Called Into US National Team Camp


Robbie Rogers is one of five Crew players selected for the January camp.

Five Columbus Crew players have been called into the 25 man camp that includes mainly MLS players along with a few Scandinavian based players. Columbus tops the overall list in players given the call into camp with five compared to the Dynamo's four. Selected Crew players include Carroll, Gaven, Hesmer, Marshall, and Rogers. Hejduk has been left off the list as he has likely already secured his spot on the roster for USA vs. Mexico.

The camp runs from January 4th to the 25tb in Carson, California. This camp excludes the American players still in their European season. Expect not many on the list(below) to make the official roster for USA vs. Mexico in Columbus. But, if some of the above five Crew players do impress, then possibly they will find a spot on the roster and a spot in front of our eyes on February 11th, 2008:
