Parkhurst called up to replace Evans

[USA MEN] Michael Parkhurst replaced injured Brad Evans in the U.S. camp roster ahead of the World Cup 2014 qualifiers against Costa Rica and Mexico.

Evans suffered a calf injury early in the Seattle Sounders' delayed match at Columbus on Saturday night and left the game.

Parkhurst started five of six games at the Gold Cup and came on late in the USA's 4-3 win at Bosnia-Herzegovina, but he has yet to suit up for German club Augsburg this season.

Jozy Altidore, who has a hamstring injury, will be evaluated by U.S. staff.

    Don't understand the ignoring of Jonathan Spector, given the remaining questions at right back. He was called in before injury, now playing regularly, looks solid on rare occasions you can see him in US. Too bad he didn't take pay cut and stay with West Ham when they were relegated.
