16- M- Pedro Pacheco | POR / CD Santa Clara
18- GK- Milan Borjan | TUR / Sivasspor
20- M – Patrice Bernier | CAN / Impact Montréal

The press has caught on to three debuts in Lucas Cavallini, Russell Teibert and favourite Doneil Henry. It’s good to give the kids a chance to drive the car once in a while, but maybe the Henry pick in particular will let Stephen Hart go about his business without being bothered over picking Doneil Henry.

Anyway, it’s a friendly. Hart had typically banal but very nice things to say about each call up. Some controversy over Dwayne De Rosario’s absence apparently as local DC media claimed he’d be going to Florida for Canada. Don’t know what happened there.

And apparently FC Dallas were totally cool with Julian De Guzman playing despite the fact they have a game on the same day, August 15th. “No, it’s totally fine Stephen, we don’t need him this week. At all. We’ll do perfectly fine without him.”

And, the rest.
