Da Boy was one of 15 MLS players called in by former LA Galaxy player and U.S. Men’s National Team boss Gregg Berhalter for a pair of upcoming friendlies in March as they prepare for the Gold Cup.
“We thought it was important to tie some of the themes of last camp into this next camp and to have some consistency in the personnel made a lot of sense,” Berhalter declared in a statement. “Again, we still think we’re able to evaluate a new group of players, and we think that is going to be valuable as we move into the Gold Cup.”
“Our goal is to keep making progress,” Berhalter continued “Building on the themes of last camp, building on the style of play of last camp, but also now evaluating a new group of players. We made progress in the first camp and it’s now asking if we can take it to another level. When we are done with this camp, it’s important that we have a good idea of our strongest group of players heading into the Gold Cup.”
