Copa Player call ups

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Three New England Revolution players were named to provisional 40-man rosters by their respective countries for this summer’s Copa America Centenario. Lee Nguyen (USA), Je-Vaughn Watson (Jamaica), and Revolution Homegrown Player Zachary Herivaux (Haiti) are eligible for selection to their nations’ final 23-player squads, which will participate in the tournament from June 3-26.

Nguyen, 29, is positioned to potentially participate in the second Copa America of his career. The Richardson, Texas, native made two appearances for the United States Men’s National Team when it last participated in the tournament in 2007. Nguyen, who has nine career caps, was called in for the USMNT’s latest round of 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers and featured in both of the team’s January friendlies against Iceland and Canada.

Watson, 32, is also eligible to participate in the second Copa America of his career. The Revolution defender represented the Jamaican national team in the 2015 tournament and made one appearance, starting and playing 90 minutes in a group stage match versus Argentina. The Saint Catherine Parish, Jamaica, native has accrued 52 career caps for the Reggae Boyz and scored his second career international goal in a 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier versus Costa Rica on March 26.

Herivaux, 20, has made five career appearances for the Haitian U-20 national team – which he represented at the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship – but is yet to earn his first international cap. The Revolution Academy product and Homegrown Player signing made his professional debut for New England on March 20, 2016.
