Martinez plays 90 today for Panama U-20. GSH's for 2/21..

Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's: Are the top Crew contemplations of the day. If you're new to the Crew... Video example of what is a Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk.

Panama wins 4-0, Martinez well involved

Crew SC midfielder Cristian Martinez was literally involved all over the field.

He started the first 15 minutes at right midfielder, the next 15 minutes at left, the next 15 minutes mainly at right, with a final few at left.

To start off the 2nd half he stayed at left, then right for a bit, and finished off the game at central midfield.

For Panama it took them a bit to break through, until the 38th minute by perhaps the worst goalkeeping I've seen in a bit.

As the early 2nd half went on that lead rapidly quadrupled. Unsurprisingly, Martinez best play was much of the 1st half and when something was still at stake early on in the 2nd.

Martinez is obviously considered a top player for Panama as he takes all their corners and free kicks as well.

See any Afful, Mensah, or Artur tomorrow?

I'm pretty sure that's Mensah there.

Berhalter mentioned to The Columbus Dispatch to expect more subs.

I don't see either having a role on day one or two in a starting capacity and frankly perhaps not necessary.

As far as Artur, he posted on his Instagram something at noon today with the following message:

"Here I am for one more day, as yesterday was and tomorrow will be each with you because... For mine I bring air to my lungs and the worst thing to do is forget your reasons."

Or something or other.

So today I would say he was in Brazil. Doesn't seem to be much of a rush to get him here, perhaps later this week.

Wall to wall
