Kyle Beckerman was among 24 players called up by Jurgen Klinsmann for the pair of friendlies the US Has the first 10 days of September, I have heard rumor that he will not be playing in the Sept, 2nd match with Costa Rica but will be with the team for their trip to Belgium. Here is the full roster:

You can read more about the selections at This means that RSL will be without Will Johnson, Alvaro Saborio, Arturo Alvarez and possibly Jean Alexandre for the 9/3 match with Philly. I did hear rumor that Alvaro Saborio might be back for the Sept, 10th RSL match at Seattle, that would mean he wouldn't be playing in the match on the 9th when Costa Rica will take on Ecuador.

No matter how you look at it with all the injuries and now call ups, the next couple weeks are going to be brutal on RSL, hopefully some guys will step up and show that they can be counted on in hard times.
