Beltran replaces Evans as right-back option
[USA-MEXICO] Real Salt Lake right back Tony Beltran has replaced Brad Evans, who
remains sidelined with a calf injury suffered on March 15 against Toronto FC, in the U.S. squad for the match against Mexico Wednesday at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann was in attendance for Real Salt Lake's 3-0 win against Toronto FC on Saturday in which Beltran started. Beltran earned two caps for
the United States in 2013.
Evans' injury means that Michael Parkhurst will probably start at right back. Beltran would be the third choice behind
