Kevan George earns international call-up

During the tournament, George made two substitute appearances to earn his first two caps on the senior roster, appearing as a substitute in the match against the United Arab Emirates on September 5 and against Saudi Arabia on September 9. George previously made three starts in the 2012 Olympic Qualifying run with Trinidad and Tobago’s Under-23 squad.
During the 2013 Major League Soccer regular season, George made a career-high 11 appearances – including three starts. The Black & Gold drafted George in the second round (29th overall) in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft, and in his rookie season he made seven appearances, including four starts.
