Gibbs Called Into US Squad

Not much time for the Christmas excess to wear off. Cory Gibbs, center back for the Colorado Rapids, has been called into the US national team training camp in preparation for a friendly in Los Angeles against Sweden January 24. The players will report as early as January 4. Gibbs was also in the previous US squad for the game in Colorado against Guatemala though he did not see any action in the World Cup qualifier. Then, he was joined by two other Rapids' players in the final squad - Pablo Mastroeni and Conor Casey. Mastroeni will not play in the vital home World Cup qualifier against Mexico on February 11 because of suspension so it would not really make sense to call him into this squad. A little tough on Casey who saw a quarter of an hour of action against Guatemala but looks to be missing out for the moment.

Hi Nick, I just saw that Gibbs has withdrawn from the USMNT training camp. Do you have any information on this?
