Call Ups for Espinoza and Thomas
Another international break is coming up this next week, and two Wizards players have been called up to their respective national teams for the games this week. Roger Espinoza and Shavar Thomas will be joining their respective national teams for friendlies this next week. Espinoza will be joining the Honduran national team in Miami for a friendly in Miami against Venezuela. Espinoza is not going to miss any games for Sporting due to the call up. With his red card suspension for this weekend, and with next weekend off for KC it doesn't hurt them in the long run either. Thomas and Jamaica are heading to China to take on the Chinese national team on the 10th as well. Thomas has apparently already left to join Jamaica as they prepare to head to the Far East for their friendly. It certainly says plenty about Thomas' place in the current team that he's been allowed to join his national team early with only 3 other central defenders currently healthy.
