by Paul Kennedy, May 29th, 2009 7AM



[COSTA RICA] Gonzalo Segares of the Chicago Fire and former MLS players Andy Herron and Michael Umana are among the players who have called up for Costa Rica's World Cup 2010 qualifier against the USA Wednesday at Saprissa Stadium in San Jose.

Herron and Umana faced off Tuesday in the deciding game of Costa Rica's playoffs. Umana's Liberia beat Herediano, 3-0, to win its first championship and the first for a team from the province of Guanacaste.

The only starters from Costa Rica's most recent qualifier, a 1-0 win over El Salvador in San Jose, who weren't called up are Roy Myrie and Michael Barrantes, who are injured.

Costa Rica, one point behind the leader USA in the Hexagonal standings after three games, also called up players based in Australia, Belgium, Norway, Poland and Switzerland.

The Ticos face Trinidad & Tobago three days after they host the USA.

Costa Rica Roster:
Goalkeepers: Daniel Cambronero (Puntarenas), Ricardo Gonzalez (Herediano), Keilor Navas (Saprissa).
Defenders: Dario Delgado (Puntarenas), Junior Diaz (Wisla Krakow, Poland), Freddy Fernandez (Perez Zeledon), Dennis Marshall (Herediano), Gonzalo Segares (Chicago, USA), Esteban Sirias (Liberia), Michael Umana (Liberia), Harold Wallace (Liberia).
Midfielders: Armando Alonso (Saprissa), Cristian Bolanos (Start, Norway), Celso Borges (Fredrikstad, Norway), Pablo Brenes (Brujas), Walter Centeno (Saprissa), Esteban Granados (Cartagines), Warren Granados (Ramonense), Carlos Hernandez (Melbourne, Australia), Pablo Herrera (Alajuelense), Cristian Oviedo (Alajuelense).
Forwards: Andy Furtado (Herediano), Andy Herron (Herediano), Bryan Ruiz (Gent, Belgium), Alvaro Saborio (Sion, Switzerland).
