Three Revolution Players Called in to U.S. Men’s National Team January Camp

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Revolution forward Juan Agudelo, midfielder Kelyn Rowe, and goalkeeper Cody Cropper have been called in by the U.S. Men's National Team for its annual January training camp.

The three Revolution players help comprise the 30-man roster, selected by acting head coach Dave Sarachan, that will train in Carson, Calif. from Jan. 10 to Jan. 29, 2018. During the camp, the USMNT will face Bosnia and Herzegovina in a friendly at the StubHub Center on Sunday, Jan. 28. The match kicks off at 9:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on FS1 in English and on UniMás in Spanish.

Agudelo, 25, joins the USMNT's January training camp roster for a second consecutive year. In 2017, the Barnegat, N.J., native made six appearances for the United States, including three in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, where he helped the Stars and Stripes win the continental tournament. He was also included in the USMNT's squad for each of its last four 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, and appeared in friendlies against Serbia, Jamaica, and Portugal. Agudelo has collected 26 caps and three goals in his international career. Last year for the Revolution, he contributed eight goals and one assist in 28 appearances.

Rowe, 26, receives his third career selection to the USMNT roster and his first invitation to the annual camp. The midfielder collected his first three international caps at the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup, where he registered a goal and an assist in the group stage. He made his international debut in a friendly against Ghana on July 1, 2017, when he started and played 62 minutes. Rowe was also named to the USMNT's roster for its friendly against Portugal on Nov. 14, but did not play. The Federal Way, Wash., native has totaled more than 12,900 MLS minutes played for the Revolution and started at least 21 matches in each of his first six seasons with New England.

Cropper, 24, earns his first career selection to the annual January roster, though he has previously trained with the USMNT in other senior-level camps. Cropper competed extensively for the USMNT at the youth international level, earning 21 caps with the Under-20 squad and seven more appearances for the Under-23s. In his first full MLS season with the Revolution in 2017, the Atlanta, Ga. native submitted a 10-14-4 record and a 1.79 goals against average.

The New England Revolution will begin preseason training for the 2018 MLS campaign in Foxborough, Mass. on Monday, Jan. 22. The club will then travel to IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. on Friday, Jan. 26 for the first leg of its preseason schedule, which features three friendly matches against MLS and non-MLS competition. Agudelo, Rowe, and Cropper will re-join the club in Florida following the conclusion of the UMSNT camp.
