Deshorn Brown, Gabriel Torres Feature For National Teams

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

Both Rapids forwards currently out on International duty got some time on Friday night, though neither of them was able to earn a win for their squad.

Both Deshorn Brown and Gabriel Torres were sent out on international duty following the 5-1 win over the Seattle Sounders, and both of them saw some time with their respective teams on Friday night.

Brown was handed a starting role for the Jamaican National Team, who ended up falling 2-0 to the United States in front of a spirited crowd in Kansas City. It wasn't a particularly energetic performance from the Jamaican team as a whole, and their midfield did not do particularly well when it came to linking with the forwards. As a result, Brown spent most of the evening hungry for service and was rarely a threat to the US defense. Still, it's encouraging seeing him get his start for his country at such a young age.

Torres, on the other hand, failed to earn the start for Panama, a decision that they may regret following a 2-1 loss to Mexico. With Blas Perez up top of the offense, Panama struggled to make anything happen on the attack through 80 minutes before Torres was introduced and immediately dished an assist on Panama's only goal.

One game remains in the Hexagonal for both squads, and both players are likely to remain with the teams as Jamaica tinkers with the lineup having been knocked out of World Cup contention and Panama plays for their lives on the final day of qualifying.
