Costa Rica calls Fire's Segares for U.S. qualifier
Gonzalo Segares of the Chicago Fire and former MLS players Andy Herron and Michael Umana are among the players who have called up for Costa Rica's World Cup 2010 qualifier against the U.S. on June 3 at Saprissa Stadium in San Jose.
Herron and Umana faced off Tuesday in the deciding game of Costa Rica's playoffs. Umana's Liberia beat Herediano 3-0 to win its first championship and the first for a team from the province of Guanacaste.
The only starters from Costa Rica's most recent qualifier, a 1-0 win over El Salvador in San Jose, who weren't called up are Roy Myrie and Michael Barrantes, who are injured.
Costa Rica, one point behind the leader U.S. in the Hexagonal standings after three games, also called up players based in Australia, Belgium, Norway, Poland and Switzerland.
