MOST COMMENTED

[USA MEN] A shortage of left backs has prompted U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann to add Dynamo defender Corey Ashe to the U.S. roster for its game Wednesday against Belgium in Cleveland.

Ashe, 27, has never been capped for the United States at the senior level. He played for the USA at the 2003 U-17 World Cup. Formerly a wide midfielder, he’s been converted to outside back by Houston coach Dominic Kinnear.

Tijuana defender Edgar Castillo is playing in the Copa Liberadores and Hoffenheim backliner Fabian Johnson, who can also play on the right, is involved in a promotion-relegation playoff.

Klinsmann has brought in Ashe even though he already has Michael Parkhurst in camp as cover for probable starter DaMarcus Beasley. Timothy Chandler, like Parkhurst and Johnson an option on either side, suffered knee ligaments two weeks ago training with Nuremberg and isn’t available.

Ashe will return to the Dynamo following the Belgium game, which is the first of two friendlies the Americans will play prior to a run of three Hexagonal qualifiers in 12 days against Jamaica, Panama and Honduras.
