With just two weeks to go before the U.S. Men’s National team returns to action, the list of players being invited to the May camp is beginning to take shape. Namely, New York Red Bulls CB Tim Parker getting another bite at the apple after being passed over the last time the USMNT was called to camp.
According to a Metro report by Kristian Dyer, Parker is a candidate for interim head coach Dave Sarachan’s May camp with a “very strong possibility” that Parker could be a part of the camp in preparation for the match with Bolivia.
Parker was last called up to USMNT camp in January 2018 and made the game-day roster for the friendly against Bosnia & Herzgovina, but he was left on the bench and did not get his first cap in the 0-0 draw.
The friendly against Bolivia will take place on May 28th at Talen Energy Stadium.
As for midfielder Tyler Adams, per the report, the Red Bulls starlet is unlikely to be called away for the Bolivia game - but is, instead, more likely to be a part of the European camp during a two-game tour of Europe that includes friendlies against the Republic of Ireland and France.
Adams has quickly established himself as one of the top young prospects on the USMNT and has been capped three times since receiving his first call-up in November.
Most recently, Adams drew the penalty call that preceded Bobby Wood’s go-ahead goal in a 1-0 win over Paraguay in March.
Ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, former Red Bulls designated player Tim Cahill was announced to have made Australia’s 32-man player list on May 6. It will be Cahill’s fourth straight World Cup appearance should be make the final squad.
Cahill needs only 4 more caps to surpass Mark Schwarzer as Australia’s all-time leader in appearances for the squad.
