Before the Chicago Fire's heart-rending 3-2 home defeat at the hands of Orlando City SC Saturday night, the club announced that winger David Accam and defender Joevin Jones would be summoned by their national teams for a pair of matches set to take place next week.
Accam, who's scored two goals in his last two appearances with the Men in Red, was one of 23 players called in by Ghana head coach Avram Grant to face Mauritius in the team's upcoming 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
After making his debut for the Black Stars on Jan. 19, 2015 in the 2015 AFCON group stage fixture against Senegal - replacing Andrew Ayew in the 88th minute of his side's 2-1 loss - the Fire's Designated Player followed up with his second cap at the end of March in a friendly with Mali. Accam swapped with Anderlecht's Frank Acheampong to close out the final nine minutes of the match in the 1-1 draw, and will be seeking his third cap at Accra Sports Stadium on June 14.

Jones, having started all 13 games for Frank Yallop's outfit this season, was also rewarded for his eye-catching performances with a nod from Trinidad and Tobago head coach Stephen Hart. With 37 caps and appearances in major tournaments with the Soca Warriors, namely the 2011 Pan American Games and the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, Jones could reach 38 should he feature in the international friendly against Jordan on June 16 at Al-Hassan Stadium.
Accam and Jones departed following Saturday's Eastern Conference bout. Alongside Shaun Maloney, currently on international duty with Scotland, both will miss the Fire's rescheduled game against the New England Revolution on June 13 at Gillette Stadium.
