Marvin Chavez, Deshorn Brown Get National Team Call-Ups

Two Rapids have been called up by their countries.


Two Colorado Rapids players found their way into the US Men's National Team picture at the start of the year, with Shane O'Neill and Chris Klute both partaking in the festivities of 'Camp Cupcake' before being (prematurely, we think) sent home. Just because there aren't any Rapids wearing the red, white and blue at the moment doesn't mean that there aren't other Rapids players who have some international work coming up, though. Two players, Deshorn Brown and Marvin Chavez, have been called up by the Jamaican and Honduras national teams, respectively.

Brown can probably be considered one of the rising stars of the Jamaican National Team now, with five caps already under his belt after getting his first call-up back in late October where he debuted against the US in a World Cup Qualification match -- it wasn't a happy one for him, as Jamaica were already way out of the running in the Hex and the US ended up winning, but still a good start to an international career.

Chavez is getting his first call-up to his native Honduras since being traded to the Rapids. The crafty winger has 37 caps under his belt for his home country.

Best of luck to both guys as they get more international action onto their resumes.
