Reinforcements Have Arrived

The recent injuries in camp have left the defensive corps depleted, but reinforcement has arrived in the form of defender Michael Parkhurst. The former MLS Defender of the Year joins up with the team from Copenhagen, where he was preparing for the second half of the Danish season with new club FC Nordsjaelland.

Parkhurst has four caps to his credit, and he most recently appeared at center back during the USA's 2-0 win against Guatemala in World Cup Qualifying last November.

I was waiting for him to be called. I'm glad he is here. He will be a good addition.

Great choice! Parkhurst is a great defender. How's Conrad doing?
