International Games Round-Up Part 2

A full slate of games yesterday resulted in not a lot of playing time for Rapids.

Dillon Serna, Eric Miller - U.S. U-23s.
Neither Miller or Serna played for the U-23s in their 2-1 loss to Colombia yesterday.  The loss eliminates the U.S. from the Olympics.

Marco Pappa - Guatemala
Pappa came in at halftime and looked pretty good, though the team was overmatched by the U.S.  Guatemala now sits third in the group and needs to beat T&T to have a shot at advancing.

Mekeil Williams - Trinidad & Tobago
Williams got the start and played the full 90 minutes in a 5-0 route over St. Vincent.  T&T leads the group with the U.S. close behind.

Shkelzen Gashi - Albania
Gashi got the start for Albania in their 2-0 win over Luxembourg.  Reports are he almost had a goal if it weren't for a big save.

Michael Azira - Uganda
Azira was an unused sub in Uganda's 0-0 draw with Burkina Faso in their African Cup of Nations qualifier.

So Serna and Azira were the only Rapids not to play while with their national teams.  Miller, Gashi, Williams, and Pappa all got 90 minutes (Pappa's split over 2 games).  Doyle got 20 or so minutes before being injured.
