Parkhurst Called Up to National Team

Soccer By Ives reports that Michael Parkhurst got a call to hop a flight from Denmark to Carson, CA for duty with the U.S. National Team.

With Clarence Goodson, Cory Gibbs and Sean Franklin all out of camp due to injuries, the back line was looking a little thin without the standard Eurepean-based crew of Onyewu, Bocanegra, Pearce and Cherundolo.

Parkhurst, who should get an award for the cleanest, most effective defender in the world, will probably get the start against Sweden this weekend.

It kind of goes to prove that, sometimes, in order to get love from the U.S. MNT, you have to go overseas.
