Fire defenders Joevin Jones and Daneil Cyrus - the team's deadline-day signing at the close of the summer transfer window - were called up by Trinidad and Tobago for the upcoming friendly against Mexico, the club announced Friday.
Head coach Stephen Hart included the pair in the 20-man squad to face the eventual champions on Sept. 4 at Rio Tinto Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah after leading the Soca Warriors to a first-place finish in Group C of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup before crashing out at the quarterfinal stage.
Jones and Cyrus join David Accam (Ghana) and Matt Polster (United States; U-23s) who are set to miss the Men in Red's trip to Montreal to face the Impact on Sept. 5 through international duty. Jones will depart following Saturday's match against Orlando City SC.
Jones has started all 20 regular season games in which he's appeared in this season, and will be seeking his 43rd cap. Cyrus, who's yet to feature for the Fire, will be looking to earn his 44th appearance with the national team.
