RENTON, Wash. - Seattle Sounders FC midfielder Brad Evans and forward Eddie Johnson have been called into the U.S. Men's National Team for 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers against Jamaica and Panama.
The USMNT hosts Jamaica in Kansas City on October 11th, and then travels to Panama for a game on October 15th.

That means Evans and Johnson will miss Seattle's matches this week against Vancouver and Portland.

Seattle's Clint Dempsey was not called into duty by the USMNT. He's recovering from a hamstring strain. Dempsey hasn't played since September 13th.
