Zavagnin Replaces Mastroeni


CHICAGO (Sept. 5, 2007) -- U.S. head coach Bob Bradley has called in Kansas City Wizards midfielder Kerry Zavagnin, who will arrive in Chicago in time for the USA's training session Wednesday morning. Zavagnin replaces Pablo Mastroeni, who is still recovering from an illness that forced him out at halftime of the Rapids 1-1 draw at Columbus this past Sunday.

Zavagnin has made 21 appearances for the United States, having played in six matches during the 2006 World Cup qualifying campaign. An alternate for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, the 33-year-old last played for the U.S. in the 4-1 loss to Germany on March 22, 2006 in Dortmund.
