Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's for 8/25.. Afful, Mensah called up for Ghana WC Qualifiers. Schoenfeld to play in Europa League

Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk: Three Crew SC-related social media topics of interest for today.

Afful, Mensah called up for Ghana qualifiers in September.

Lalas Abubakar was hoping to be called up for Ghana. Yet the Crew SC rookie will have to wait a bit longer. 

However, mainstays Harrison Afful and Jonathan Mensah were called up to face Congo twice at the beginning of September.

Will Crew SC pursue one more international?

Before wheeling and dealing completed earlier this month, Columbus gained an extra international spot for this year and next from New England as part of the deal for Krisztian Nemeth.

They also gained one further international spot from the Philadelphia Union for the rest of this year for $50,000 in general allocation money. 

That puts the Crew at 11 spots for just this season. We currently have 10 internationals.

As a result, Crew SC could grab one of the following international free agents before the roster freeze date on September 15th. 

Or we could even give a former Crew SC player in the American Cole Grossman a go again. 

Can't hurt.

Former Crew player Schoenfeld will play in Europa League
