International Games Round-Up Part 1

So after a scary Friday here's a recap of the 7 Rapids who were in action (or not) over the weekend.  Six of the seven will have a chance to b e in action again tomorrow before heading back to Denver for Saturday's game against Toronto.

Dillon Serna, Eric Miller - U.S. U-23s.
Miller got the start and played the full 90 for the U.S. in the Olympic qualifier.  Serna did not make the gameday 18.  The U.S. got an important road goal in the 1-1 draw.

USA vs Colombia - Tuesday Mar 29th, 7:30pm - ESPN2

Marco Pappa - Guatemala
Pappa was a late scratch from the starting XI against the U.S. but did sub in at halftime and made a couple of Americans look bad.  A huge 2-0 win for Guatemala puts them in good shape going into Columbus tomorrow night.

Tim Howard did not have a stellar night for the U.S.  It was already decided before the game that Guzan would get the start tomorrow night.

Guatemala @ USA - Tuesday Mar 29th, 5pm - ESPN2

Mekeil Williams - Trinidad & Tobago
Williams, surprisingly (at least to me) was an unused sub against St. Vincent.  T&T had to work harder than expected but did get the win and now leads the group.

T&T vs. St. Vincent - Tuesday Mar 29th, 6pm (No U.S. TV)

Kevin Doyle - Ireland
Doyle got the surprise start for Ireland and, well, we all know how that went.  If you want to see a very graphic image of the injury go here.  He, obviously, will not be available tomorrow.

Shkelzen Gashi - Albania
Gashi did not make the gameday eighteen due to a calf injury.  His status for tomorrow's game or Saturday's is unknown.

Albania @ Luxembourg - Tuesday Mar. 29th, 12:15pm (No U.S. TV)

Michael Azira - Uganda
Azira was an unused sub in Uganda's 1-0 loss to Burkina Faso in their African Cup of Nations qualifier.  He'll have another chance to get his first cap tomorrow.

Uganda v.s Burkina Faso - Tuesday Mar. 29th, 10am (No U.S. TV)
