Frankie Hejduk Added As A Reinforcement For Wednesday's Match Against England
LONDON (May 25, 2008) - U.S. Men's National Team head coach Bob Bradley has summoned Columbus Crew midfielder Frankie Hejduk to help bolster the squad in advance of Wednesday's match against England at Wembley Stadium. Hejduk will arrive in London along with the remaining MLS contingent on Monday.
The two-time World Cup veteran has 75 caps to his credit, and will be making his first appearance of 2008 in a national team camp. Hejduk will be a welcomed addition as West Ham defender Jonathan Spector has been experiencing hip joint irritation, and his availability for Wednesday remains in question.
