When the Revolution next take the field at Gillette Stadium, Brad Friedel's bench will look a little different than it has so far this season.
That's because not one, not two, but three Revs players have been called up for national team duty. Forward Justin Rennicks, midfielder Zachary Herivaux, and defender Gabriel Somi will all join their respective national teams for upcoming training camps and matches.
Rennicks, who made his MLS debut as a halftime sub last week against Columbus Crew SC, has earned his second U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team call-up of the year after attending a training camp in Florida in January. This time around, Rennicks will join the U-20 MNT for training camp and a pair of matches in Spain later this month to get ready for this summer’s 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland.
Herivaux has been called up to join the Haiti National Team in preparation for its 2019/20 Concacaf Nations League qualifying match against Cuba, which will take place in Port-au-Prince on March 24, while Somi will join the Syrian National Team in Iraq for matches against Iraq and Jordan as part of the 2019 International Friendship Championship later this month.
All three players are expected to be unavailable for New England's home game against FC Cincinnati on March 24. The Revs are next in action this Saturday in Toronto, looking to pick up their first win of the young season after starting 0-1-1.
