Zavagnin Named to US Squad

Wizards midfielder, Kerry Zavagnin has been called in to the US National team camp for the upcoming game with Brazil. Zavagnin is replacing Pablo Mastroeni on the roster for the match. He'll be joining Davy Arnaud, Eddie Johnson and former Wizard Josh Wolff on the team for the match.

Zavagnin will have the chance to earn his first cap since since playing the full 90 minutes in the USA's match against Germany back in March of 2006. With the Wizards having the week off, it's easier for Bob Bradley to call in Zavagnin then another defensive midfielder like Ricardo Clark, who's Houston Dynamo play Real Salt Lake this weekend. Zavagnin isn't totally undeserving, though, he's having a career year scoring wise, with 3 goals, his first since 2003. He's also come back with a much stronger season then last year, where Zavagnin really struggled.

Congrats to Kerry.
