Brian Ching Ruled out for Saturday's World Cup Qualifier against Honduras

CHICAGO (June 5, 2009) - U.S. forward Brian Ching has been ruled out of Saturday night's match against Honduras as he continues to recover from a hamstring strain that he aggravated earlier in the week.  Ching, who has four goals in 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying, will be replaced on the roster by Conor Casey.  The Colorado Rapids forward and MLS Player of the Month for May has nine career caps. Casey's most recent appearance came in the USA's 2-0 qualifying win against Guatemala on Nov. 19 in Commerce City, Colo.
