BRADENTON, Fla. – While the New England Revolution won’t play their preseason opener until Wednesday morning against the New York Red Bulls, a trio of Revolution players will be in action on Sunday night when the U.S. National Team closes out their annual January camp with a friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina (9:30 p.m. ET, FS1).
Juan Agudelo, Cody Cropper and Kelyn Rowe have all been with the USMNT at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center in Carson, Calif., since January 10, as acting head coach Dave Sarachan assembled a young squad with a focus set firmly on the future.
Agudelo and Rowe have both been frequent participants in U.S. National Team camps in the past year, as both were part of the group that won the CONCACAF Gold Cup last summer. Agudelo has made 27 appearances for the Nats, while Rowe has made three, all last July.
Cropper, meanwhile, is one of three goalkeepers in camp hoping to make their full international debuts, along with Toronto FC’s Alex Bono and Columbus Crew SC’s Zack Steffen. Bill Hamid is the veteran GK in camp with four appearances for the U.S.
All three Revolution players are expected to join Brad Friedel’s first preseason camp in Bradenton, Fla., following Sunday night’s friendly, which wraps up the 18-day national team camp.
